a realistic look at Amish belief and culture by former Amish (vid)

Recommended Posts

This fascinates me because it was respectfully produced by a former Amish family.


The Amish are interesting to me because of the abundance of self-created stricture based on nothing more than their tradition. To my thinking, the Protestant and Catholic churches are different only in the particulars of that self-created stricture.



"...excommunication and shunning is the fabric which holds the Amish culture together"


"tradition is a very strong horse. It will carry you a long way.."


"...when he preached, he preached fear."


"...we went to a lot of trouble to live simple"


"...the beachy amish were allowed to have cars, but the cars had to be painted black"
