Scripture for Today

In days to come
there shall be
Universal design
access and equity

Freedom
autonomy
independence
assistance
well-paid well-trained PCAs interpreters assistance animals
adaptive equipment
timely safe accessible transportation
choices

Dignity
inclusion
housing
social opportunities
rights
work
equal pay

In that day all people shall know hospitality in every place
Every door shall open fully
elevators rise and descend
the deaf shall see language
and the blind shall hear space
every body will live in care and safety
able to go in and out
up and down
freely
accommodated
welcome

ableism will be no more
all people will be welcome in every place

Baya Clare

By the mystery of your incarnation, we are made your sisters and brothers.
May we welcome one another as we would welcome you.
Seeing your love for those who are oppressed,
give us a passion for a more just society.
In all we do,
give us openness.
Amen.
