The Difference is in the Doing

I happened to catch a documentary on the Amish on Public Television the other night. I found it really interesting when a tourist asked an Amish man who had come aboard their tour bus, “How are we different from one another?”

The Amish man asked, “How many of you people have television sets in your home?” Everyone raised their hands.

Then he asked them, “How many of you think that television is generally harmful to children?” Again, hands went up.

A third question: “How many of you, when you get home, are going to get rid of your television?”

No hands this time.

“That is the difference between us,” he said.
