I do all my own PowerPoint slides and sometimes there are bloopers.

One memorable one was in the lovely song, Jesus what a beautiful name...

Only, it now read, Jesus, what a beautiful dame.

If that wasn't bad enough, a wag in the band called out, 'She's behind you!'

Though this was not a typo, I once sang something completely wrong that completely changed a hymn. The hymn is called "Ren og rettferdig" ("pure and justified") and is a standard Norwegian revival type hymn, written in 1895. See more here, unfortunately in Norwegian: http://salmebloggen.no/2016/09/17/ren-og-rettferdig/

One of the lines says, "Å, jeg er frelst og salig fordi SØNNEN har gjort meg virkelig fri," which translated roughly as "Oh, I am saved and blessed because THE SON has really set me free."

But I sang, "Å, jeg er frelst og salig fordi SYNDEN har gjort meg virkelig fri," which translated roughly as "Oh, I am saved and blessed because THE SIN has really set me free." Yeah………

A mistake that could just have easily been made in English.

Really enjoying this thread!

Some of you regulars will maybe remember me posting this before, but it's always been a favourite typo of mine, and of mine own doing!

I used to do the funeral sheets in a past parish, and would cut/paste and replace the names of the deceased throughout the liturgy, automatically. So if we had finished with Mary Smith's funeral and now wanted to go on to the next, all I had to do was ask the computer to remove Mary's name and replace it with the next decedent's name.

Hence the unfortunate occasion during the creed when we all solemnly affirmed that Jesus was 'born of the Virgin Albert'.

Is Outrage!


And even Worse Outrage than being born of the Virgin Edith, say...

I do a similar thing with my own copy of the order of service for weddings so that the names of the couples are printed in front of me, and I do not make a mistake.

I was, however, taken aback at one wedding to find myself being invited to read that (e.g.) "they shall be united in that love as Robertt is united with his bride, the Church." and in the Collect to be invited to pray the words "We ask this through our Lord Jesus Robertt your Son…" The previous groom had been called Chris. Luckily it is a sheet for me only!
