Joshua DuBois: Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships will build faith-based work

WASHINGTON (CNS) — For someone who came into the job as part of President Barack Obama’s promise to change the way government works, Joshua DuBois has nothing but good to say about the previous management of what is now the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, which he heads.

Although Obama has set out a different focus for the office created by President George W. Bush, then called the Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, DuBois talks in terms of building upon successes, rather than changing course.

The office and a newly created advisory council have been given four specific areas on which to focus.
Perhaps the one farthest afield from the work of the last eight years will be advising the National Security Council to foster interfaith dialogue outside the United States.
