Models of intervention with adolescent alcohol and drug use emphasize education and counseling and minimize the criminal sanctions applied to adults. The Mennonites intermingle freely and openly with non-Mennonites. Leisure, work, education, play, worship, and friendship revolve around the immediate neighborhood.

The practice of sitting in an attentive group silence, each being attuned to stirrings of the divine within, occasionally sharing these messages with the group, gave me a sense of how my own ability to be totally present to myself could be a gift to the community.

Definitions of worldliness vary within and between Amish settlements, yielding a complicated maze of practices.
