Where I'm at in the book he has taken that love back with him to the states. He finished up his last year of college at Wheaton and as an intern at 150 acre suburban Chicago mega church Willow Creek. He's living back in Philadelphia in a communal living environment, a 501c3 antiprofit known as The Simple Way thesimpleway.org
You should check out the website. As I mentioned in the last post about the Irresistible Revolution I probably wouldn't agree with everything he had to say, such as his writing about fair trade coffee beans (See my previous post titled Non Profits Part 2 in June). However, the alternative economy that he talks about where there is a dislike for conspicuous consumption and a love for community and determination as an advocate against poverty is right up my alley. The coolest part is that so much of what he writes about he's discovered through personal experience. He does have a fire in his belly and I pray that I stay inspired to want to fight for this cause.
