UK (& Ireland) vs US Spelling

Yesterday I put up an infographic from Scot McKnight's Jesus Creed blog. Although this one does not specifically mention Ireland, we are trying to get more comfortable with the British spellings that are used here. (As well as working to say "Zed" instead of "Zee," and "Haitch" rather than, well, "H." This actually works well for me since I can now blame my poor spelling on living in a different country!
