American Presbyterian pastor Thomas Dewitt Talmage gave this popular lecture in the late 1880’s. Starting with a review of a series of blunders that people make in their lives, Talmage takes note of the increasing pace of life in the late 1800s; he points out the importance of a sense of home, while, at the same time, demonstrating a belief in progress, encouraged by enterprise and the advance of civilization and Christianity in the world. Thus, overcoming blunders is part of a person’s responsibilities as they perform their specialized work in a world where, overall, the tide is rising.
