Celebrating Passover

This week we celebrate Pesach, Passover. It will be my first in-person since moving to The Woodlands. How much we took for granted before March 2022! The Passover story reminds us that we should not take for granted many blessings, including freedom. Egypt is not only a political place. It is also a symbol of the enslavements that still bind us: fear, anxiety, and a general tendency toward cynicism. The antidote to such things is belonging to something of great significance. I believe Judaism provides such a way to belong and CBSW is a great model for such belonging. The last two years have strengthened the need to find comfort and joy in each other. I am grateful this week that we can gather for worship on Saturday morning and for a second-night seder on Saturday night. And I am grateful that we live in a country that enables us to celebrate in freedom along with our Christian and Muslim siblings.
 
May the months ahead bring us all blessings of freedom and hope.
