The fourth cup is the cup of praise and restoration. Over the course of our seder, we have supported one another, and we have held space for one another. Now is the time to go back into our respective communities and circles of influence, energized with new insights and a greater sense of urgency to move beyond the "narrow place" of our current relationship to the Earth. We can move to a place of increased learning and stewardship. We are all capable of making a difference and we are forever discovering new ways to care for our world. Now is the time to be thankful for the chance that we all have been given to do good, and now is the time to take a stand so that we can be proud of our care of the Earth moving forward.

We hope for a promised land; a future where our plagues no longer haunt us and our actions and blessings improve the world in which we live, and to that we say…
