Ask an Amishman: Accepting Outsiders Posted on March 5, 2013 in Amish Culture John Stoltzfus touches on a few topics in answering today’s broad question: Amish-English friendship, converting, and divorce. How hard is it to become accepted into the Amish community?
Amish - Bird in Hand, PA :: Amish - Bird in Hand, PA :: I must be a Christian child, Gentle, patient, meek, and mild; Must be honest, simple, true In my words and actions too. I must cheerfully obey, Giving up my will and way;... Must remember, God can view All i think, and all I do. Glad that i can know I try, Glad that children such as I, In our feeble ways and small, Can serve Him who loves us all. -Amish school verse from "The Riddle of Amish Culture" by Donald Kraybill ::
