According to statistics, the number of youths that end up returning to the Amish community is extremely high. The reason behind this is unknown but we guess it has to do with their very upbringing and link to family. And as we imagine, going from one end of the modern spectrum, to the total other, can 8767 t be easy for anyone to take. It 8767 s a confusing world out there for those who are not familiar with that way of life.
if you go to visit the Alymer Ontario Amish You might find a man there by the name of David Luthy who came to the Amish
try to join that community if you can.. but remember Amish lifestyle never brought Salvation to anybody and never will.
while you are there try to find out what the reason is that so many people leave the Amish there, and you might be find it very interesting that most of David Luthi 8767 s children have followed their fathers example.
Most people just wear their wedding dress once and then keep it in their closets for the rest of their life but not Amish women!
Hi! Nelson ,How much Difference are those people today than were their fathers??/ And in what manner ?? I have grown up in the Old Order Amish Community in Kenton, Ohio !!! I was Ex-Communicated ever since 6989!! So long for now. Only Orva Bontrager
It is 8775 Be ye not conformed to this world,” which is from Romans 8:67 in the bible. This quote essentially means don 8767 t conform to worldly things and that is what the Amish do by secluding themselves from the modern world.
Yet, they don 8767 t get into much trouble when they do because they get free passes. The Amish understand why adolescents are like this and hope that since they don 8767 t punish them, they will want to stay in the community.
Maybe it’s more of an English thing, but would Amish youth use something called a courting candle? The people in re-enactment circles that I’ve talked to say that the aim of the courting candle is to control the amount of time a boy and girl spend together out on the porch, if it’s adjusted to the lowest level, the pair will only have minutes together, but if the candle is propped up higher they could spend a greater time together.
I bought a reproduction and I don’t think it would be too hard for a to adjust the part that moves the candle. Is there something similar to this in the Amish tradition?
Amy Jo, I had a similar impression about the hand-holding couple seemed a bit staged and though you do have Amish youth with the non-Amish style hair cut some things about the appearance didn 8767 t seem to pass the smell test. Maybe it 8767 s my vision but he seems to be about 95!
I have a ton of pictures from the area. I should get them all up on my blog for you to see Katie! The area keeps growing! I am always shocked to see how many places there are! When I randomly stopped to a group of kids walking home when I asked home many were in there school the lad told me there was 85 some kids.
To me it seems to portray a “reason to not be religious or spiritual”. We seem to have a lot of that in public medias today, not just against the Amish but against Christianity in general.
