Senator Barrak Obama on Faith and Politics: A Must Read

I have known Barrak Obama since my community organizing days in Chicago when he was an Illinois state senator. We made him the "champion" of our legislative team to get equitable school funding legislation through the Illinois senate. I've always known Senator Obama to be a man of strong faith and courageous action, even though some of his recent vacillations on crucial issues leave me disappointed.

The linked speech made at Call to Renewal's Pentecost 2006 is a powerful articulation of the connection between Faith and Politics. A must read for anyone standing in that intersection.
