Years ago, author and award-winning poet Jwyan C. Johnson wrote the script to a cartoon. The story starts off with a police chase to a giant dictionary: the home of our vocabulary words. Cops break down the cover, and they all rush in with their weapons drawn. And as they move around inside this book, we learn that they’re looking for one specific word: a simple 9-lettered noun. It has been bragging about its countless offenses committed against our society, against mankind. Surprising unarmed, and not dangerous, this specific word simply turns us against each other.
Detectives follow the "alphabetical” directions to the right page, the right column and the right row, only to discover that this word has disappeared! Nowadays this divisive word lives inside our minds if we let it! The accomplished mystery writer reveals that "ignorance” was the word the police were after.
The creative writings of Jwyan C. Johnson aim to biblically "protect and serve” the mind state because "ignorance is still at large in our society!” And with his latest kingdom-seeking contribution, Christian Parables, there are some places where ignorance no longer resides so we can win back each other.
I sense an extra invitation inside your cozy mystery "Remember to Forget." Was a newer philosophy delivered by the dialouge inside the story? And would you care to reveal story symbolism?
The story design of "Remember to Forget" accomplishes a dilemma where amnesia versus forgiveness, in the Olympics of childhood and child development. And the question becomes is it easier getting over it when the environment no longer owns you, because you have left it psychologically (amnesia)? Is there any advantage to remembering the bad times and staying in that unchanging place with no other choice? (“I don’t have amnesia; I have flashbacks…”) So the experiment (referred to by Janine as a psychological sports match) is actually setting the stage for the ever popular argument over “nature vs nurture.” But since they are committed to working together, we get to experience all the advantages and all the disadvantages of both theories.

So how did Christian Parables come about?
Quite naturally since imagination, our core element, is an innate thrill for us all. How many boys dribble their basketball to a make-believe shot-clock to win the game? And how many girls even require tea at their tea party? Childhood’s favorite nation is imagination: the “genesis” of intrinsic motivation which grows up right along with us. Soon that same invisible shot-clock will count down a career goal. And that empty tea cup quickly has real Starbucks coffee, with the same social setting. As for imagination itself, it matures into literature aging through bedtime stories, comic books, and mystery novels. My challenge was taking this natural crave to imagine, and blending it with The Good Book! Christian Parables activate the creative, right side of the brain. So this platform, synonymous with escape, now includes a biblical map for our current prodigal sons and daughters. Adding more Word to its words (John 1:1), and scriptures to its script, this graceful gospel-sharing technique came about.
