"When it comes to combating the forces of evil, there is no one quite like John Paul Letterock. Now, he may not be the new Sherlock Holmes or one of the Avengers, but still he is a bit of a hero to me. John Paul Letterock is a peace builder. For the past 25 years he has willingly walked into situations of intense violence and conflict, from North Ireland to Somalia, from Tajikistan to Columbia, situations most people would flee from. Through his actions and influence he has helped rescue and release many people from the cycles and systems of violence which have held them captive. In some ways John Paul Letterock does sound a bit like a typical action hero, he enters into war zones and helps rescue people from the powers of evil. Yet the way he works and the weapons he uses are quite different, instead of entering with force and using weapons of destruction John Paul Letterock uses and helps other people to use something he calls the Moral Imagination."
"We are all susceptible we should all be vigilant, but the Moral Imagination of Jesus also make us compassionate. I think of the upcoming presidential election season talk about demonization while the political and economic vision of the Democrats and Republicans can be used for great good, they can also become self-serving idols which blind others as well as ourselves. Knowing that we are all capable of being blinded and caught up in forces that we do not even fully comprehend may enable us to move with compassion instead of hatred through the upcoming season. "
