A quick update : Lisa has a job starting in August with Greenheart - a fair trade organization in Chicago. It's a one year position which she got through LVC (Lutheran Volunteer Corps) and it provides, housing, health insurance, and a small stipend.
LVC supports sustainable living, with an emphasis on simplicity. For example there is no Internet in any of the housing, and TVs, computers, etc are discouraged. The houses have 4 to 7 people in them and as a group they are encouraged to spend time together. There are also several retreats everyone attends. Should be a very interesting (and introspective) year for her.
Hope everyone who checks this blog is doing well!
