Dignity Police

Would you consider joining a new vocation? It's one where we, the Dignity Police, would live fully into our baptismal covenant to respect the dignity of every human being (BCP, 305).

Here are some of our dignity paraphernalia:
1. Orange spray to dissipate free-flowing flatulence produced by unsuspecting patients.
2. Hair brushes, combs, hair spray and "bed head" products to coif matted and cow-licked hair
3. Lip gloss, with just a tinge of reddish-brownish natural lip color

Our duties would be to attend to post-surgical patients or those preparing to move on to God's eternal love. We'd coif hair, close legs, cover up private parts, shut eyes, and remove hand mitts.

I know, I know, we are all made in the image of God. It just seems that to respect the dignity of every human being we need some assistance. Call in the Dignity Police!

Out of respect for Christ, be courteously reverent to one another. - Ephesians 5:21

How do you respect others, in this moment?
