Thank you for visiting.


To borrow the words of Brendan Pietsch, "I blame all of you" for the existence of this blog. To the many friends and parishioners who have poked, prodded, encouraged, and downright insisted that I publish my written responses to your frequent provocations, you know who you are, and you have no one but yourselves to blame.   

My hope is that this blog will provide a platform for us to engage with one another in dialogue and discernment on the many issues of our day -- theological, social, political, etc. -- in a more personal manner than the pulpits of our beautiful sanctuaries allow. To facilitate this dialogue; please make use of the "Ask Charlie" button on this page to share your thoughts and questions.



Bringing a wide range of experience and commitment to issues of social justice, Charlie has long been a tireless advocate for the most vulnerable and disenfranchised residents of
Washington, D.C.
