deconstructive philosophy for advent... :-)

"Faith is waiting and anticipation. It cannot under any circumstances count on the temporal exactitude of correspondence between an assertion and its verification... Deconstruction and messianicity are bound up closely with each other, inasmuch as the deconstitution of the sign brings about a total openness to how God can reveal himself, or does reveal himself, in a concrete setting. The Christmas story - God having been born in a stable - is a complete deconstruction of all the texts of messianicity that had preceded it."

- Carl Raschke
