Ecclesial Bloopers

Blooper #1:

In a move reminiscent of the old game "telephone," a recent press release from our church underwent a series of unflattering, unintended changes. Below is the original ad followed by the subsequent changes that emerged in the editing process.

"DivorceCare for Kids at Doylestown United Methodist Church."
"Divorceare for Kids at Doylestown United Methodist Church."
"Divorce are for Kids at Doylestown United Methodist Church."

It was finally published in the Intelligencer in all of it's glory reading...

"Divorce is for Kids at Doylestown United Methodist Church."

Yeah, that's not so good.


Blooper #2:

Apparently there are some preschool teachers at our church who do not enunciate as well as they should. There are approximately 40 preschoolers running around our church who refer to me as "Master Amanda." I kinda like it.
