How Can I Help?

Let’s say — purely hypothetically — that you have read about the Disseminary, understand our excitement about it, recognize it as a major force for Good in the fields of theological learning and online learning (both!), and appreciate our labor in generating and sustaining this site. So you ask yourself, “What can I do to help the Disseminary?”

Well, we have some suggestions:

  • You could buy some Disseminary gear at our online store. We make a dollar or two on each sale.

  • You could offer to participate in one of our seminars, or bestir yourself to comment on others’ participation. You could send responses to the reviews that we post — which we will then moderate and append to those reviews.

  • You could contact us relative to the possibility of submitting a manuscript or other educational resource for publication, or of leading a seminar, or of writing a review.

  • You could write a check to Seabury-Western Theological Seminary (2122 Sheridan Rd., Evanston, Illinois, 60201) with the memo area clearly marked, “For the Disseminary.” Seabury will route all such donations directly to the Disseminary’s operating funds, without even skimming off a percentage for handling. That’s so nice of them, you might even want to send them a separate check (feel free to mark that, “For Endowed Chair in either Theology or New Testament”).

  • You could say, “Your dreams have come true: find a warehouse to set up shop, and realize your wildest fantasies” (so, we have relatively tame fantasy lives).

Or you could write us a fan letter, light a candle for us, say a little prayer for us, feed a hungry neighbor, shelter a homeless sojourner. We appreciate it all.
