    meryln Yoders bee keeping

    While reading the latest story by Meryln Yoder I wondered how Mr Yoder who I understand is Old order Amish, knows what is happening on this site and sends articles like this? I know of no Ordnung of the Old Order Amish that allow them to have a computer, which uses electricity to operate, to communicate. Is there someone that is keeping him informed thru the mail?

      Kerosene-powered

      Merlyn Yoder’s device is kerosene-powered so it falls within the bounds of the Ordnung. The device knows what is being said on Amish America through extra sensory perception. So, technically speaking, it isn’t connected to the internet.

      You may not know of any Old Order Amish that are able to use electricity and computers, but they are allowed by certain church districts.

      Yes, I know that does not seem like Old Order in the minds of some people, but who are we (English) to decide what makes a Amish person Old Order, New order, or whatever.

      Merlyn hand-writes the posts, and one of his English friends in Indiana photographs the pages and emails them to me.

      Thomas- I am Old Order and I use a computer at work, which is in no way against the “Ordnung”.Another option would be to go to the public library . Or borrow a friend’s tablet or laptop.

    Lovely!

    What a lovely picture Mr. Yoder paints of spring in the Midwest. Thank you for a thoughtful, mindful-of-God way to start the day!

    I enjoy bees and beekeeping and good hymns, although until today I had not thought how well they go together! Thank you for a very enjoyable post.

    I wish everyone would stop spraying crops and use natural methods like the farmers with whom we have a CSA membership. They don’t care that they are killing the bees and the monarch butterflies and who knows what else and that is going to hurt us.

    Bees Make Good Choices of the Ausbund

    I love some of those translations. And I love Indiana honey from our local bees. I’ll have to look you up when my supply runs low.

    Thanks for the submission.

    Happy bees!

    “…let’s go get those dandelions!”

    I love that; dandelions look like sunshine on the ground to me. Mr. Yoder has a joyful way with words.

    🙂

    My brother is a beekeeper and knows all to well it’s challenges and rewards. He still says though that it brings him great enjoyment. What a nice article; I will certainly pass this one on.

    Mr. Yoder has a gift, alright! He (along with the much-appreciated English translation of the Ausbund) paint a memorable & meaningful scene.

    I hope to be taking another bus tour to the Shipshewana area in early Sept. (the 2nd-3rd). On the itinerary is a tour of an RV factory where many Amish work. I wonder if I’ll see Mr. Yoder there? It sure would be something to look forward to!

    Also, might he be related to Loren Yoder of Silver Star Leather?

    Thanks for the post. I installed a new package of honeybees just yesterday that I got in the mail. They certainly are fascinating little creatures, I could watch them for hours.
