It is sponsored by the Society of Christian Philosophers (SCP). Christina Van Dyke, PhD, Executive Director of the SCP and Associate Professor of the Calvin College Philosophy Department, is the administrator. The Calvin College Computer Services Department supports it.

2. How does a listserv work?

Anyone who has access to electronic mail communication with the Internet may subscribe to the list by following the directions below. They will then receive an electronic copy of every message which is sent to the posting address for the list (scp-mail@calvin.edu).  If they wish to respond, post, or otherwise have their words sent to everyone on the list, then they send e-mail to scp-mail@calvin.edu and Dr. Van Dyke will post appropriate content to the list.  To prevent spam, only the Executive Director has publishing rights on this listserv.

3. Who may sign up for this listserv?

Anyone. The intent is that it be for members of the Society of Christian Philosophers, however.

in the message body (not the subject).

5. How does one unsubscribe from this listserv?

Unsubscribing is similar: just send mail to the same address majordomo@calvin.edu with the words

again in the message body.

6. Who may send information to scp-mail@calvin.edu?

The list is moderated by the Executive Director of the Society of Christian Philosophers.  Anyone may send messages to the Executive Director (cvdyke@calvin.edu) and, if appropriate, she will post them to the listserv.
