Let Them Go

I am reading the adventures of Don Quixote with one of my kids. The book we use is an adaptation for young people. This dialogue caught my eye.

Sancho said, "It must be full of prisoners." Freeing prisoners had become a habit with Sancho.
"Let's let them out," he suggested. "By all means," said Don Quixote.

Blogger comment: There's a lot of wisdom (and biblical theology) in that exchange. Our mission is to set the prisoners free--and imprisonment comes in many, many diverse forms.
