Editing the New Message Wiki

An account is required to edit the wiki. Contact The Society if you are interested in getting a wiki-editing account.

Each page is a topic, organized primarily around the points and directives of a subject of the New Message; it is the New Message Teaching on ______ . Quotes and processes, metaphors and blessings, directives and practices can all be arranged by the points that they express. How this is structured evolves over time for each topic, and varies by the depth and the specifics of a given topic.

To edit a page when you are logged in, begin up above on the right. You can type in a subject like Seeing and click "Go". If the page exists, you will go there. If the page does not exist, you can click on "Create this page" and off you go.

Then click the "Edit" tab to the left of the search bar. If you don't see it, you are probably not logged in.
