Worship Resources for Accessibility / Equal Access

Let us worship with our eyes and ears and fingertips;
Let us love the world through heart and mind and body...
Let us worship with the opening of all the windows of our beings, with the full outstretching of our spirits...
Let us worship, and let us learn to love.
—Reading 437, Kenneth L. Patton

In our Unitarian Universalist worship we celebrate our diversity, and disability is part of the rich diversity of human existence. To help us create positive disability-related worship, we are offering a selection of worship resources that have been collected: poems, responsive readings, some sample orders of service, and other materials that can help you plan disability-related worship services in your congregation.

Please share disability-related resources you have found or written: access @
