Bring only your determination to serve
and your willingness to be free.
Don’t wait for the bread to rise.
Take nourishment for the journey,
but eat standing, be ready
to move at a moment’s notice.
Do not hesitate to leave
your old ways behind —
fear, silence, submission.
Only surrender to the need
of the time — to love
justice and walk humbly
with your God.
From Passover Remembered by Alla Bozarth-Campbell
