  1. I would really love to attend this, but I have another commitment that weekend. Is there any way I can attend just one day (Friday)? Also, is there another way I can be of support? Please let me know what other option(s) there may be.

    Thanks so much,

    Erin Jensen

  2. Hi John,

    I appreciate your willingness to be transparent with the finances. Will you post your 2014 financial statements on open stories foundation soon? Can you share how much money you are trying to raise? Thanks!

  3. John has now successfully modeled Dr. Seuss’s Sneetches.
    Rile everyone up with questions without answers and then charge them to discuss them ad nauseam.

    1. If you’re looking for John’s perspective (answers), listen to part II of Dan Wotherspoon’s interview of John Dehlin. An incredible interview. I think after listening to that interview, you’ll find that John is encouraging you to find your own answers.

      If you’re coming from a model where answers regarding the purpose and meaning of life were provided to you, it may be difficult to grapple with finding your own answers. It may not be the way for you. You may be more comfortable having someone hand you the answers. But, for some others, reaching one’s own conclusions regarding values and life purpose is the road to an incredible life.

      It might be a discussion worth joining.

  4. Hi Jon, great job your doing, it would be nice to have retreats for healing back here in the uk and also healing retreats for members and post members alike for the who have placed their babies in lds care for adoption, l’d like to see more help for those suffering the effects of having placed their children in adoption.
