My friends, Sarah and Josh Sabey, are working on an exciting project. It’s called “everyword.” They’re such a fun couple and have some really great insights and ideas. Sarah and Josh are an LDS couple to create the first crowdsourced interfaith study of the Bible.
Here’s a video they’ve made:
The tagline of the project is “Nothing breaks down barriers, fills in trenches, or curbs animosity so well as working side by side towards a common goal.” I believe that 100%. This project will help to bring new perspectives and create greater unity among those who believe in a higher power.
Here’s a description of the project from their website:
This project attempts to increase interfaith interaction and cohesion by creating a crowdsourced study Bible. The website works like this: users are able to annotate the scriptures with their own insights, interpretations, as well as videos, music, books, or other relevant resources. These annotations will be publicly visible, and any registered member may then use them to enhance their own study. Results may be filtered by religion, author, medium, and so on.
By crowdsourcing Biblical commentary, everyword seeks to bring people of diverse faiths and perspective together in a common goal and allow them to support one another in the most basic of Christian habits—scripture study. The power of the project, we believe, is just this: Nothing breaks down barriers, fills in trenches, or curbs animosity so well as working side by side towards a common goal.
Sarah and Josh have been featured in several articles already. On ldsmisisonaries.com, it says, “Users may post their own interpretations, as well as videos, music, books, or other resources relevant to a particular passage of scripture.”
Today is a big day. Whatever amount of money they are able to raise will be matched by sponsors. So head on over to their website and support them today! Also, if you are interested in contributing your ideas to the project, head on over to their Facebook page.
