Dear Folks -
Since April Fool's Day fell on Sunday this year, I begin this
talk with the history of the day and then some of the greatest (to
me) April Fool hoaxes of all time. One example is the great spaghetti
harvest. Some of what passes for authentic religion in our time is
almost laughable. It would be if it weren't so sad. I summarize what
seemed important to Jesus as he did his teaching.
