"So, you think you can tell..."
One thing our Advent waiting and restraint can help us with is the reclamation of our humanity in an increasingly de-humanized culture. It's a time to ask ourselves if we have sold our baptismal birthright, or exchanged "a walk on part in the war, for a lead role in a cage". If we don't use this time to ask ourselves the hard questions, we're just "running over the same old ground" only to find "the same old fears".
