Dictionary.com....or, "Bible study FAIL"

im⋅mo⋅late

–verb (used with object), -lat⋅ed, -lat⋅ing.
1. to sacrifice.
2. to kill as a sacrificial victim, as by fire; offer in sacrifice.
3. to destroy by fire.





em⋅u⋅late

verb (used with object)
1. to try to equal or excel; imitate with effort to equal or surpass: to emulate one's father as a concert violinist.
2. to rival with some degree of success: Some smaller cities now emulate the major capitals in their cultural offerings.

Can we see that these two words are NOT the same word? Tee-hee. This is a flyer for a Bible study starting locally. Words cannot describe the mirth that occurred upon discovering this vocabulary error. So if you hear me say to any of my kids, "Hey, do you ever want to light me on fire?", it's not because I'm completely crazy. Well, I am, but that's not why.

Here's a picture of said flyer:



Oh, and if you double-click on the image, it'll make it bigger so you can get the full effect. Snaps to Jan Culpepper for being such a good sport when having it brought to her attention.
