Tonight begins the Jewish Holiday of Passover, the celebration of freedom from slavery, bondage. How appropriate to celebrate it here with you. Here we are free from the bondage of addiction, taking with us all that we have, all that we are, but only that. We leave behind the idols of tobacco, nicotine in any form. We leave behind the pits of affliction. We turn our faces toward the promised land.
Celebrate with me as we let death pass over.
Celebrate with me as we walk steadily toward freedom.
Celebrate with me as we keep the faith that life is precious.
Shalom, and Happy Passover.
