Last Tuesday, I presented my second-ever sermon to a small group of fellow-students who are in my preaching section. The text, Genesis 37:1-4, 12-28 is from the set of lectionary readings for August 7, 2005. Genesis 37 is the famous story of Joseph and his "coat with long sleeves" (which is traditionally translated "the coat of many colors").
A copy of the sermon manuscript can be found here.
...of the White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington, DC. I enjoy the Bush family primarily because they are so good at self-deprecating humor. This is, well, an extreme example, and it is totally hilarious. Even if you cannot stand President Bush, if you still have a sense of humor, you will enjoy this video. Several of the jokes are really outrageous. My heart actually went out to Cedric the Entertainer, who had to follow the First Lady's wonderful performance.
