Rambling for Kirwan Uniting Church Keep in Touch pew sheet 9 February 2020

I’ve been shouting at my computer again.  It insisted on auto-populating an email address field with an invalid address, and when I corrected it, it just jolly well overwrote the correction and re-inserted the invalid address.  Of course, there was no point in shouting at the computer, I’ve disabled speech recognition, and its vocabulary probably doesn’t encompass the words which I was shouting anyway. And the dog gets very upset.  I have to assure her that I’m not shouting at her, and give her a treat or two by way of apology.
King David might have had my computer prophetically in mind when he writes in Psalm 32 about “the horse or the mule, which have no understanding”. (Don’t be like them, he’s saying).  Luckily, he goes on:
“but the Lord’s unfailing love surrounds the one who trusts in him.
Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, you righteous;
sing, all you who are upright in heart!”

Singing is a great anger management therapy.  I should have sung to my computer. It wouldn’t have stopped its recalcitrant email misaddressing, but the dog would have been happy.  I particularly enjoy singing old Sankey songs. One of them is derived from that very Psalm 32, “Be glad in the Lord and rejoice”. If you read this online, here's a link .

I might slip it into a service. Better clear it with the musos first …
