"Ableism is the process of favoring, fetishizing, and building the world around a mostly imagined, idealized body while discriminating against those bodies perceived to move, see, hear, process, operate, look, or need differently from that vision.”
—Rebekah Taussig, in Sitting Pretty: The View from My Ordinary Resilient Disabled Body

This worship collection (under development through the fall of 2021) is one way to further that learning within our spiritual and religious values.
