Great show, but Amish church needs some outside prayers...
This is a great show. Mary's heart is so big you can't help but loving her. Chester reluctantly follows Mary, which he should, as she's smarter than she lets on, and has her priorities in the right place. The Amish church leaves a lot to be desired though. Their logic is convoluted and needs a lot of help. For some awful reason, they think 'shunning' is the proper means of getting people to follow their rules. But where in the Bible does it say that ANY church has the right to impose such draconian laws on it's congregation? And shunning only works to drive people away from the Amish, not have people stay with them. The younger generation's tired of the Amish church mistreating people, causing more to leave than ever before. But I really want to know what God it is that tells the church that members of the church, shunned or not, can't attend the wedding of the children God brought into their lives if said children have decided to leave the Amish church. Its not the job of any church to judge us. That job's already been spoken for. If the Pope didn't make the cut, than I doubt the Amish church did either. I hope we get to join with Mary and Chester's family for another season next year. I wish them all the luck in the meantime.
