A Slight Mistake

A precious lady affiliated with our school, for whom English is not her first language, recently wrote me about her part in helping out with concessions during basketball games (I keep the list).  Her message adds a whole new dimension to what we're trying to accomplish here:

"Please let me know when I am helping with the conception stand."

Oh the difference of just a few letters :) Funny! Have you ever seen church bulletin bloopers? I get a kick out of them. I will copy for your enjoyment. I apologize for the length.
Bloopers by Mark Lowry

I am a big fan on the Gaither Video Series- I love to listen to them on my notebook via youtube.(usually when Jan is gone) Here are some bloopers from the Gaither video series- you would never guess they had so many bloopers in listening to the videos. Now that is thinking- making money from your bloopers- I could have been a millionaire by now if only I could sell mine? Its good to remember everyone makes mistakes, and its not just me. I often wish I had the gift of Singing- if you heard me sing, you would say that as well.

Bloopers Found In Church Bulletins

This Afternoon there will be a meeting in the south and north ends of the church. Children will be baptized at both ends
