Asked by Samantha from TN

Q: Is the act of shunning a frequent thing in the Amish culture?

A: Hi Samantha! Not nearly as frequent as Amish romance books would indicate. One Old Order Amish woman told me that in her lifetime she could remember only one instance when someone in her church was shunned.

Thanks for the question Samantha!
