Q. I’ve recently begun dressing more like the Amish, including wearing a prayer kapp. I try to also live simply in all areas of my life, incorporating the beliefs and values of the Amish wherever I can. I also subscribe to The Budget. However, there are no Anabaptist churches close by where I could attend. Would the Amish be offended if I dress like them without being a member of their group?

A. The Amish don’t care how you dress, and won’t be offended if you dress plainly without being a member of their church.
