Barack Obama's retired pastor has made his first public appearance since the furor over his remarks criticizing the United States. He said nothing about the Democratic presidential candidate or the uproar itself.

On Saturday, Reverend Jeremiah Wright preached at a Baptist church in Norfolk, Virginia, where his late uncle had been the pastor.

He delivered a sermon on the topic of overcoming trouble.

Wright never mentioned Obama, who worships at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, where Wright had been the longtime pastor.

Wright touched on the controversy just briefly when he told the Virginia congregation that reporters sneaked into a private funeral service on Saturday in Chicago, where he delivered the eulogy.
