This Blog

To many people the focus of this blog will come as a surprise. I am fairly well known in Arizona political circles as a Democratic member of the State Senate in the 1990's, as a Member of the Clinton Administration in President's second term (serving in both the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy and the Pentagon), and as a lawyer for various Democratic candidates and organizations and progressive causes. Many people would therefore expect me to focus on politics and public policy. The people who know me best, however, know that lately my focus has been elsewhere--on questions of faith. That will be the focus of this blog. Of course, I am an unreformed political junky and will, at times, talk about current political events. And, as should soon be clear, I think that my faith itself has political implications. Nonetheless, I will aim to focus on what matters first--my faith.

Hi Chuck,

Came over here from Entangled States. Bookmarked your blog and am looking forward to your future blogging, as I have recently moved here to Phoenix from Washington DC and share an interest in things both political and Episcopal.

If you like to check in at different churches from time to time, you would be most welcome at Holy Innocents in north Phoenix.
