Sisters & Brothers,

Blogger has a spell-check feature. It is the little button on the template that looks like a check mark with 'ABC' printed above. Please, please familiarize yourself with this tool. So many of you are writing such intelligent posts about the future of our church and other important topics. But you come across as major dweebs if your heart-felt diatribes are full of spelling errors.

Separate -- not seperate

Definitely -- not definately

Accommodate -- not acomadate

These are just three specific examples of spelling errors I read on blogs today. I know there are folks who believe spelling is no longer important. But good spelling gives the impression that you are literate and well-read. Just a thought.

Sincerely (not sincerly) yours,
Alex

"Take care that you never spell a word wrong. Always before you write a word, consider how it is spelled, and, if you do not remember, turn to a dictionary. It produces great praise to a lady to spell well." ~Thomas Jefferson

    P.S. I started writing this on Thursday, but didn't publish it until Friday. One of the many glitches of Blogger.
