    Thanks Natalya, I’m really glad you found the blog. I hope you enjoy it. I have been blessed to have had a lot of contact with the Amish and have really enjoyed the friendship and the different perspective I’ve gotten from being around them.

    I have stumbled across your blog whilst browsing the internet and wanted to leave a comment.

    I live in the UK and until the terrible tragedy within the Amish community I was unaware these people even existed. Ignorant? No. Just never come across these people. But now I have I am interested to learn more and see the world from a different perspective, I am so glad I found you blog and I will be following how you get a long in the coming weeks and months.

    Sounds like a cool experience – Any chance they’d let you go to church with them?

    Can outsiders attend Amish church? (June 16th, 2007 at 07:10)

    Can outsiders attend Amish church?

    Yes, I think at least some would have no problem with that…I had already been invited once a few years ago in Indiana but unfortunately couldn’t make it…this time around I mentioned it to a couple friends and they said it would probably be no problem, one said that they might even give a message in English (since it’s a (high) German language service), which surprised me. So I’m looking forward.

    The services where they don’t allow outsiders are the ones just before the twice-yearly communion service, during which they have to make sure everything is spiritually ‘right’ in the congregation–ie if there has been any serious discord among members they have to get that settled otherwise they can’t go forth with communion.
