Some months ago John Dehlin tried to make a living off blogging and podcasting, only to have it flop in a spectacular fashion (Sorry, no link available, since John deleted the post). John is back to blogging for free again (never really stopped, actually). So, why not resurrect MormonStories.org? Didn't take much prompting to get him going again, now did it? Judging from the responses in the comments, the DAMU are clearly for it. Nah, they wouldn't actually pay to support e-Nehor's hobby, like his predecessor, but they sure are eager to have him do it on his own dime. Hey, John, if at first you don't succeed, then try, try again.

Petty post.

John is doing a great work that has blessed and benefited thousands and will continue to do so for years to come.

How is John asking for donations different than someone who writes an LDS book, including general authorities?

"I watched them tearing a building down,
A gang of men in a busy town.
With a ho-heave-ho and a lusty yell,
They swung the beams and the side walls fell.

I asked the foreman, “Are these men skilled,
The kind you’d hire were you to build?”
He laughed and said, “Why, no indeed!
Just common laborers are all I need.
They can easily wreck in a day or two
What builders have taken years to do. “

And I thought to myself as I went my way:
“What part in the game of life do I play?
Am I a builder who works with care,
measuring life by the rule and square?

Am I shaping my deeds to a well-made plan,
patiently doing the best I can?
Or am I a wrecker who walks the town,
Content with the labor of tearing down?”"

John is a great man and a builder and I am proud to call him a friend.
