Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge, Week 42

Amish & technology do mix.

I did a double take when I saw this “Amish” lady talking on a cell phone.

P1010122

Actually this lady is probably Mennonite, which has less restrictive traditions.

  1. Yes, this is a Mennonite. My sister is one and they do have cell phones but only use them occasionally. According to her there are varying degrees of conformity in the belief system vs modern society. Like many other cultures, the Mennonites are changing.

    • Amish wear dark dull colors, this lady’s pretty pastels was a giveaway of her culture. While the area is known for the Amish there are some Mennonite. I didn’t realize there were many Mennonite in Oregon, I learned something new.

Been there? Done that? Wanna go there? Tell me about it!
