Young volunteers turn backs on money
from USA Today
Lindsey Krinks has a private-college degree but earns less than $10,000 a year. She works a couple of part-time jobs, but most of her time is spent as an unpaid advocate for Nashville's homeless men and women. Krinks is part of a movement of mostly young Protestants known as the new monastics. Inspired by the monks of Christian tradition, they've turned their backs on a consumer culture that says they are what they buy. They're forging a new kind of American Dream, one that values quality of life over building a successful career. They live simply and are often dedicated to social causes.
