My friend Steve Evans has begun a series on his blog about the lessons he has learned from being unemployed (or as he would say “under-employed”). I have had coffee with Steve once a week for nearly 2 years now and have enjoyed it all. Besides bringing up theology and life and their intertwining, we have become friends, added others to the mix, and just flat out asked a million questions concerning what’s next around the corner.
I suggest you follow this series on being part of the economic downturn from someone who has felt its effects. Part 1 is on the reality of not being poor amidst seemingly financial hardship. Here is the link: http://theultrarev.blogspot.com/
