The Washington Post has a very interesting story today about a house of worship in DC focused on faith-based activism. They provide everything from help finding jobs, to affordable housing and medical services for the homeless. It’s a good reminder that faith-based groups do just fine providing these services without the financial support – or interference – of government.

For me, it also serves as a reminder that many of us who seek to protect the boundaries between religion and government are eagerly waiting an announcement on the shape the White House Office of Faith-Based Initiatives will take in the Obama Administration. Early indications are that it will be an improvement on the Bush Administration’s approach, but will it go far enough?
