Mandela was an angry young man, a revolutionary with generations of legitimate reasons to hold resentment in his heart. He was locked up in prison for 27 years, the prime of his life, away from his wife and family. And this was his thought when asked to lead his country forward. Wow. I couldn’t imagine anything more perfect for the advent season. (Still, I can’t promise that I won’t be drawing something less positive for this coming week.)
