I was at a service yesterday for the commissioning of a new pastor in a church not so very far away.
I had been invited to preach, which was an honour and a privilege, but does make one rather conspicuous when one sees an unfortunate typo during one of the hymns.
We were "Lifting high the cross" gustily and "praising his sacred name". I had not realised that among all the titles to which Jesus is entitled is included "the Sod of God".
Don't you hate how spelling checkers only highlight typos that are not real words in themselves?
How much success did I have in keeping a straight face?
And how much help was my Beloved at this point?
