Why does my daily email end up in my junk mail?
Unfortunately, this is something we have little control over. Some internet service providers (ISPs) decide that a particular email is junk and will automatically send it to this folder. However, you can stop this from happening if you use Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express to read your emails. Try one of these two options:
- Right click on an unopened message and choose 'Junk Email > Add to Safe Senders List. Once in the Safe Senders List all future emails should be fine.
- Drag the message from the junk mail box into your inbox, where the message will be fully functional
If you use a web based email service, there should be some junk email options. Be sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book and/or 'safe senders' list.
Why is this website called WordLive?
We are sometimes asked why we have used the name 'WordLive'. We chose this name, because while WordLive is more than just words we have a big passion about the importance of words - particularly those of the Bible!
The opening pages of the Bible tell us that everything created was brought into being by words. In the gospel of John, John talks about Jesus being 'The Word made flesh' and talks of Jesus being the first and last letter of the alphabet.
The author and theologian, Eugene Peterson, talks of the art, the discipline of spiritual reading. He talks of reading that 'enters our souls as food enters our stomachs, spreads through our blood and becomes holiness and love and wisdom.' We pray that this will be your experience as you delve into the experience that is WordLive. Is there a syllabus for WordLive and can I see a copy?
Yes, there is a WordLive
syllabus and you can download a copy on the syllabus page.
