It was this morning at church, our annual service of Christmas choir music and stories. The minister was about to launch into the children's story, and began by relating various Christmas carol typographical errors that had appeared over the years in church bulletins. He would read the line as written and ask what the line was really supposed to be. The first was "Joy to the Earth, the Savior Resigns..." Of course, these kids were too young to see "reigns" in the "resigns." The adults chuckled.
Then came the next one: "Peace on Earth, Good Will to Me."
"So, what do you think that line was supposed to be?" he asked.
The kids didn't miss a beat--at either service.
"Good will to all!" one piped up.
