Young Amish Man Killed

Through Amish tragedy comes grace… In a small town in Northwestern Pennsylvania lives a community of Old World Order Amish.  Their lives are simple and clean and filled with compassion and love for their neighbors. They live a private life far away from technology and the hustle and bustle of modern society.  Even though their existence is quiet by nature, they still face the trauma and disappointments of everyday life.  They live and die, they mourn and celebrate, they love the Lord, and they marry and raise their children praying they will have a desire to remain connected to their...

Model Yourself After the Amish – Separate from the World

You may have witnessed yourself how the Amish place a great deal of emphasis on being different from the world around them.  They dress different, act different, talk different and take pride in keeping to themselves separate from the world. They keep society at arm’s length and seek to separate themselves from anything they feel would threaten their faith. While they know they have to live in the world they strive to not live of it.  Meaning they don’t let the influence of the world control or dictate how they should live.  Anything that would threaten the purity of...
