The Magazine of The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America


Kathleen Kastilahn

Kathleen retired from The Lutheran in fall of 2009.

The part of Kathy's job as editor of the People & Faith section that she liked best was working with terrific freelancers, which just might have something to do with the fact that she wrote for the magazine for 18 years before joining the staff in 1992.

She lives in Evanston, just north of Chicago, with her husband, Bill. They met there as undergrads at Northwestern University — at the Lutheran Center, probably the only place on campus where a journalism student and a tech student would cross paths.

Their two grown sons live in Chicago: Will and his wife, Jodi, and Dan.

Kathleen and her husband are members of St. Paul Lutheran Church. One Saturday a month she works as a volunteer salesperson at 10,000 Village, a fair-trade store that is part of a nationwide network sponsored by the Mennonite Central Committee where all the goods are made by craftspeople from the developing world. She particularly enjoy it because my travel for the magazine has brought me to many of the countries involved — from Bolivia to Thailand.
