I do not really have any stories about my ethnicity to tell. Methodists do not really tell stories. We do not have the exciting heritage that Mennonites have.
Our people did not come to America in one large group from the same country for the same reason. At least I do not think we did.
We do not really talk about our heritage. I never heard stories about my ancestors from my grandparents; I discovered what I know about them through my own research. The only relatives I have who attend my church, West Unity United Methodist Church, are my parents and my grandparents.
Many of the families at my church, like mine, have relatives who attend churches of different denominations. We all have different last names and we do not think much about relations or where we came from. We do not have any ethnic foods that we eat like borscht or moon pies.
We have potlucks once in a while but, then again, so do most churches. No one in my church had ever been on a mission trip until last year when a group went to Nicaragua.
There were only four of them and at least two had never been out of the country before. Usually we just have special offerings for projects or missions, most of which are in the United States. In my church, we do not necessarily support the war but we do support our troops.
We pray for them and we have a ministry to collect coupons to send to the troops. As our pastor says the name of the service they were in, they stand and we recognize them. On one side of the stage in our sanctuary is the Christian flag and on the other side is the American flag.
Throughout my life, clarifying my denomination has not been very important. I can probably count on one hand the number of times I have been asked my denomination. When I look back at the poetry I have written, none of them speak of being a United Methodist.
They do not mention denomination at all. When I write, I write as a Christian, not a Methodist. Just as we do not focus much on heritage, we do not focus on denomination. The stories my pastor reads from the Bible during the scripture lesson are not about Methodists or Baptists; they are about Christians.
If I walk into any of the churches in my town I do not think I will feel very out of place. I will know someone there from school or work. I went to a service at the Presbyterian Church in my community once and it was very similar in structure to my own church.
In the past, the churches in my community have had joint services for Christmas Eve or in the summer we set up tents at the park and had a community church service where each church helped out.
Recently, while researching my family history, I discovered that I have deep Mennonite roots on both sides of my family. My grandfather attended a Mennonite church and so did my father until he married my mother and started attending her Methodist church which is where we attend still today.
When my great grandparents moved to West Unity, Ohio from Berne, Indiana they started attending the United Methodist church because, at that time, there was no Mennonite church in West Unity.
It is very strange to think that under different circumstances I could be a Mennonite living in Berne, Indiana right now. If one decision had been made differently my entire life would be changed.
It also brings up interesting questions. I have always been proud of my Methodist heritage. But am I a Methodist or a Mennonite?Interview With My Grandma (An Essay About His Grandmother My Son Wrote When At High School) Works that resemble the modern essay have been written since ancient times.

Gone were the memories of a time before automobiles, houses with electricity and running water. Gone were the voices that told stories at night before a campfire instead of sitting glued to a television.
Words Essay on Grandparents. Article shared by. Most of us have fond memories of spending our childhood days with our grandparents. While some of us have spent our after school times with our grandchildren, some had the opportunity to be with them only in the holidays.
“My great grandfather used to say to his wife, my great-grandmother, who in turn told her daughter, my grandmother, who repeated it to her daughter, my mother, who used to remind her daughter, my own sister, that to talk well and eloquently was a very great art, but that an equally great one was to know the right moment to stop.”.
