Most of you coming to this site have heard of The Budget, the venerable Sugarcreek, Ohio-based newspaper that connects Amish and Mennonite settlements through the states. Some of you have heard of other Amish-oriented newspapers like Die Botschaft which also serve the Amish settlements albeit in German, whereas The Budget is printed in English. The German Baptists have their own paper, The Vindicator and the Mennonites have several of their own. One of them is called Die Mennonitische Post and there is a neat article this week on Mennoweekly.org about the newspaper. As a veteran of the old print newspaper industry, it is nice to read about people who still find the paper so relevant. Die Mennonitische Post connects Mennonites in Canada with the colonies in Mexico and South America. Click here for an interesting read about the paper and the people it serves.
