Get Involved


The world needs the good ideas in this site. If you would like to help, there are lots of opportunities. Here are a few examples:

  1. You can research and write explanations of words and phrases in the Word, or of whole Bible stories, then submit them here.
  2. Are you artistic? If so, you can illustrate concepts from the Word, or from Swedenborgian theology.
  3. Are you bilingual? Help us translate explanations. We're mostly English-based at the moment, but we don't intend to stay that way - we want to make a good study site for users in all the major languages.
  4. Are you a software developer? We're using a Linux, Apache, PostgreSQL, PHP, Symfony stack. It's an interesting project, and easy to get involved in, and there's no lack of work!
  5. Do you have other ideas? Feedback?
