We plan to feature writers from all parts of the world — writers who demonstrate fidelity to biblical truth while engaging intelligently with the world around them, including the science. Our web sites statistics indicate that visitors regularly come from 165 countries of this world. While we probably won’t be able to feature writers from the majority of these countries, we do hope to have a small representation.

But we need  your help! You can use our contact form to tell us about Adventist thinkers in your part of the world — whether or not they are college-educated. Please tell us what you believe their areas of strength are and how to contact them. (Email address is good.)

Please give us feedback on current blog entries and let us know what subjects you would like to be featured and discussed in the future. When you comment, please let us know from what part of the world and what part of the country you are writing.

  1. I just want to thank you for this ministry. I have used it for the past 6 or 7 years and have followed all the progress you have made so far. Thank you for making the Word of God so accessible to everyone out there who need it at their fingertip. I am a journalist from Vanuatu studying here in Australia and would like to contribute something in future. Just some coverage of the stories from my part of the world would be nice. Cheers and keep up the fantastic job!

  7. God's work has never been more interesting. Was on a different look a few days ago,now before the end of the week this site is in NEW GARMENTS! This is beautiful,keep it up. I access the lesson from a phone and the display is just wonderful. I would suggest to those having problems to open this using Opera mini. It has been handy for my nokia 5000....'Durban-SOUTH AFRICA'

  12. The text, "Knowledge increases, men run to and fro" is applicable to this site. The enhancements make the site more user friendly and it is very easy on the eyes. The fact the anyone, anywhere on the planet can access it speaks to the universality of the Advent Movement. God bless and keep up the good work.

  15. I opened up ssnet this morning, Sabbath, to read the Further Study passage from Christ's Object Lesson. I am a SS teacher in Huntsville, AL. Of the many things I appreciate about ssnet, I especially appreciate being able to click on the links to Ellen White's writings. This is a tremedous asset for those that do not have immediate access to her books and articles. I would be happy to do some writing for the site if needed. I have contributed to ss teacher's materials for the North American Division in the past.

  16. I use this site daily to study and then use it on my phone during class on Sabbath. This new format is nice will make studying here even more rewarding. I appreciate the hard work you have done and I know the Lord is using this site to continue His work. May His blessing be with you all in all parts of the world as we work together to help bring the work to a close so we can go home!

  17. Great site. I have been using it for some time now. Hope for future developments where one does not only leave a comment but could also interact sponteanously: sharing ideas for SS or other Sabbath projects. That would be great. Lots of single people are home on Friday nights and Sabbath afternoon. Instead of listening to music, sleeping, reading, walking alone or being tempted to watch television hopping on here to share could offer another option.
    May God greatly bless you and expand this ministry!

    • Thanks for your comment, Ginger. could you elaborate what you mean by sharing? Are you thinking of a sort of chat room?

      SSNET used to have that years ago. Just wondering ...

      • Thanks for the query. Actually yes. 'Sharing' would punctuate a combination of cognizance. There are so many interesting points that come up when the SS lesson is shared.Take the example of the story of the "Fig Tree". It is not evident to everyone that the curse prononced against it meant also "judgement", but the thought came out in the SS class discussion. Parallel to that, one could juxtapose the story of Ananias and Saphira as another case of immediate judgement. And I am convinced there is more to it. So sharing 'does a soul good'. It is a curser to comprehension one might otherwise bypass.
        The very best,

  18. I do know this, that our local church is steadily shying away from any formal use of the Sabbath School Lessons.

    Is that a concern? Not with me. I wish though that we all recognize that and adapt to SS teachers referencing only a minute portion of the weekly study.

  19. I've liked the fact that I can study online with all the great helps. Well when I now look at all of the updated features on the new site, it makes it very hard to put it down. It gives me so much more than the SS lesson and I thank God for giving you the knowledge to take me to places I've prayed about going to in my walk with the Lord. Key West, Fla.

  20. I am so happy to see that this site has a new look!!! Thanks for the overhaul. I have always used this site especially when travelling and so I appreciate how user-friendly it is right now and the idea of a blog is fantastic. I am based in Nevis, West Indies but I am currently in Paris, and then on to London. How great it has always been to travel with your books on your laptop or netbook. Will certainly visit you more often now that I know that further interaction is welcomed about our experiences and what we would like to see discussed. The lessons for this quarter and especially last quarter were really enjoyable. As a Sabbath School teacher I can tell you, my class really enjoyed the lessons. Thanks for all you do.

  21. Hello Everybody,
    What I want sabbath school writers to do is this. Any biblical word,symbol or figure that needs explaination should be done in the sabbath school but not to be left for the readers to do the the search themselves, eg, words and figures in prophecy. For not all readers are adventists.
    Thanks.

  22. God bless everyone who is putting energy and commitment into this website. It is truly a blessing to me. I take it with me on my IPad. It's make studying the lesson so accessible and fun. You have created a legacy and should all be proud. You may never know how significant this really is here on earth, but you surely will in Heaven.

    Thank you

  23. I use this site frequently for Sabbath School study, and I appreciate the work you're being led by God to do. When I invite people to church I send them a link to the current lesson so they are able to participate in the lesson. Thanks again for this great resource. Greetings from Accra, Ghana.

  26. Good Morning,

    I have not had an opportunity to look at all aspects of the new sight yet, but look forward to the changes and I'm sure upgrades. However I am having problems accessing the RealTime and CrossRoads Sections. I am a youth SS teacher and these sites are an invaluable source of information for me.

    I have a Windows 7.0 Ultimate operating system and when I try to access the sites I get a Acrobat Reader message saying that "there was an error opening this document. An internal error occurred."

    I hope you are able to repair this error so I can continue to use this site to prepare for my classes.

    Best Regards,

    Carolyn in Los Angeles

    • Hi Carolyn,
      I cannot duplicate any error on our site. If you are getting the error while you are on the RealTime site, you need to contact them through their contact link, since we have no connection with their site.

    • Carolyn. I too am a youth sabbath school teacher. What lessons do you use? Cornerstone or Realtime? And how in the world do you get your kids to be interested in their lessons?!

  27. I only wish I had found this site before this year [April] it would have been an asset for teaching.
    I was a SS teacher for 20 years, got out for 11, and have been asked to do it again.
    This site will be a tremendous help to me, I need to learn to prepare a lesson, present it and get the class to participate. Hopefully, I can find all this here. The new design should make it a lot easier to find what I need.
    Thank you and may God bless you as you continue to make His word more accessible to all.

  28. Hello. I use this website often but my question in writing in this blog is mainly about my role of youth sabbath school teacher. I can't seem to get the students to study or be interested AT ALL in their lesson. I'm considering using the collegiate quarterly but am unsure it will fit their age level. Any ideas?

  30. I am not in the adult section of my church as yet; but when I was younger, I found great pleasure in reading and being uplifted by the testimonies placed in each lesson by persons around the world. As a young child, they always lit up my heart spiritually and motivational. However, in recent years (approximately 5 years or more), I have now noticed that instead of a page dedicated to testimonies, they have been replaced by advertisements of books regarding health, spirituality or otherwise. This is not at all bad; but I find it quite disappointing when I open the adult quarterly in search of testimonies, only to find descriptions of books that serve little purpose and even littler to learn from due to their unavailability and irrelevance. After all, the quarterlies aren't meant for the purpose of advertisement; seeing that persons in many parts of the world use them and it would be difficult to access most of the books shown. The quarterlies are meant for spiritual uplifting and learning; and the Adventist websites are much more appropriate for advertising. I hope this matter can be looked into. Sometimes we learn to accept God into our lives more firmly when we hear others' stories. Thanks for reading and God's richest blessings!! :)

    • Lydia, I don't know from where you are writing, but in our part of the world (North America), each week's lesson is followed by a personal experience/story from some part of the world. (The exception is the Teachers' edition, which does not include these stories, but then it doesn't include book advertisements, other than the companion book and Ellen White quotations.)

      Does your quarterly not include these stories?
