In Typos Past
I thought of Janet as I looked at the screen.
I was lost in worship, so it required a double then triple take to register the mistake. But sure enough, up there in bold letters were the lyrics to the hymn we were singing – “our shelter from the stormy blast.”
Only “stormy” was missing an “m.”
I thought immediately of Janet – who lists worship related typos among her pet peeves.
And Janet is a story teller, so I wondered if she would’ve taken this one personally, had she been in Kansas with me.
My guess is she would have let out a laugh before even realizing it.
I mean, seriously, when was the last time anyone in church needed “shelter from a story blast?”
Although, come to think of it, such a blast would be welcome from time to time.
And I imagine G-d, in His love, would choose to not shelter us from it.
Just my thoughts,
