As a Christian who is active on the internet, I hold myself to certain standards of conduct. They are: * I guard my online relationships * I am careful to visit websites that do not compromise my life in Christ * I take care that my written communications reflect Christ in my life * I guard my time to assure that my time online is kept in proper balance with the rest of my life

Pronunciation Poem



I take it you already know

Of tough and bough and cough and dough?

Others may stumble, but not you,

On hiccough, thorough, laugh, and through.

Well done! And now you wish, perhaps,

To learn of less familiar traps?

Beware of heard, a dreadful word,

That looks like beard and sounds like bird,

And dead--it’s said like bed not bead--

And for goodness’ sake don’t call it deed!

Watch out for meat and great and threat--

(They rhyme with suite and straight and debt.)

A moth is not the moth in mother,

Nor both in bother, broth in brother.

And here is not a match for there,

Nor dear and fear for bear and pear.

And then there’s dose and rose and lose--

Just look them up--and goose and choose,

And cork and work and card and ward,

And font and front and word and sword,

And do and go and thwart and cart--

Come, come I’ve hardly made a start.

A dreadful language? Man alive!

I’d mastered it when I was five!

Boy am I glad I was born in America!
What a mess someone made of our language.
It is amazing that we learned it!
