I know eh? so sad! I can't wait to see what happens now with the 2 proposals and Izzie and the money/free clinic thing!

Regarding the girl with cancer (Jilly), they discussed being "shund". I was not raised near any Amish. What does being shund include? Just not talking to the person? I thought Jilly was such a pretty girl. My folks always taught me to look for natural beauty and she had it. What's up with Alex? Do you really think he is done with Addison? Or do you think it is an act to break the ackwardness? He is so sly.

They will have a re-run tonight. Are you really sure you want someone to tell you?

here's a definition...Shunning is the act of deliberately avoiding a__sociation with, and habitually keeping away from an individual or group. It is a sanction against a__sociation often a__sociated with religious groups and other tightly-knit organisations and communities. Shunning has a long history as a means of organisational influence and control. Extreme forms of shunning and related practices have rendered the general practice controversial in some circles.

I sounds like there could be different degrees of being shunned...just like each religion has a different degree of strictness. Thanks.

I have not been keeping up with it. I love that show. I am planning to buy the DVD of it.

 

kellens mom - January 26

I know they have a rerun on Friday nights because my dh always misses the Thru night show. I think it starts around 7 pm central time.

Kellensmom... We have a lot of Amish neighbors. You are right, There are different degrees of being shunned. Some will completely sever all ties to a person who leaves. My dad has some Amish patients at his dental practice, though, that have relatives who are shunned, but they allow them in their home and see then often. They put them at a separate table about an inch apart from theirs lol.

Oh, I love Grey's Anatomy, It's the one show I refuse to miss. They sure do know how to leave you hanging! I can't wait until next Thursday. I'm so bad at guessing what is going to happen so I'm not even going to try to guess. I though the whole "George the s_x machine" thing was funny though. Oh, and I'm going to chip in my two cents about being shunned in the amish community. My family is very friendly with the Amish, as a matter of fact we're going over to my parent's amish neighbors' house to play cards with them tonight, lol. I have also mentioned that I love Amish romance novels. When a person is shunned from the amish community (also known as being under "the ban") there can be different degrees of it depending on the transgression. A person is only shunned, however, if they are already baptised into the church when they do something shun-worthy. There is a "running around" time called rumschpringe that occurs during the teen years when an amish person can do pretty much whatever they want, drink, drive a car, carry a cell phone, date "english girls", etc. At the end of these years the person needs to decide wether or not they want to stay in the amish community and be baptized into the church or if they want to leave the ordnung. So after baptism if someone does something bad and does not "repent on bended knee" then they are shunned. Some of the most severe forms of shunning include; no pa__sing of objects from a shunned member to a non- shunned member. For example the shunned person would have to set an object down, then the non-shunned person would pick it up instead of pa__sing directly from hand to hand. Th shunned people are not allowed to eat at the same table as non-shunned people,nor are they allowed to take part in the common meal after church, no one is supposed to speak to them, if the person is married there is no s_x allowed between them and their non-shunned partner, among other restrictions. Hoped that helped a little :o)

I hope Christina says yes! George and Callie are cute, but I don't know if she should say yes.

EricaG- So in the case of Jilly and her friend, could her friend have gone to her funeral if she pa__ses from her cancer? What happens if a person who is part of the religion disregards the "shunning"? In the end, the mother talked to the girl who was shunned...

 

EricaG - January 26

kellens mom, from what I understand she can go to the funeral. It's quite odd the way the amish community works. Even as "English" we have been invited to attend church with our amish neighbors and we could attend funerals if we wanted. A shunned person could attend the funeral but they would not be talked to and they would not be allowed to eat with the church members at a meal afterwards. The punishment for soemone who breaks the rules and talks to a shunned person is that they would be shunned too. Ther is such thing as "probationary shunning" It's a period of time where the shun is enforced on you, although in most cases not as severely. After that time of probabtion you can repent your sins to the church elders and the shun will be taken off of you, however if you do not repent then the shun is enforced even more strictly. So the mother who talked to the girl, if the church elders ever found out about it, would probably be put under a probationary shunning until she repented of her sins.
