Slice Of Amish Life: Business Is Slow

Comment #690166 by Mike Lucas on 27.11.20, 16:57

The Schwartzentruber buggies have rounded tops in Orange County. The other Old Order Amish group there have flat topped buggies. You’re right, they’re even more conservative than the Schwartzentrubers.

Thank you Alice Mary, I am grateful for the same. Always great to hear frim readers and I know you’ve been here with us a good long while now. I believe the Holmes County New Order would generally be okay with this and some of the mainstream Old Order churches as well. Phil Sarlo has another video from a New Order youth singing.

That’s great Abner. I wonder what the Bunker Hill of the 1930s and 40s was like as compared to today.

Thank you for blessing my home with the thankful praise. God surely blessed all of us receiving it.
Beautiful.

Also enjoyed the poem. I’ll remember it each dayI wake at 4 am to head to work and care for the sick.

Blessings!

Amish Stands Closed For COVID Violations; Owner Feels "Targeted" By The County

Comment #690126 by Dale on 26.11.20, 13:54

The virus was isolated way back in March of this year, in more than one country, that’s how they sequenced the genome for it…and that is the driving factor behind the most promising vaccines and will inform the development of therapeutics. Until we have those about the only thing on offer is masks, distance, and proper hygiene.
This article does not give enough information for anyone to determine if the citation was unreasonable or not. Yes, when you are in the back having lunch you cannot wear your mask. No, when you are in the back having lunch Not wearing your mask you cannot be within 6 feet of another employee…if that is the regulation in your area. We don’t know what the inspectors found when they arrived in the back. We also don’t know what they found when the business was shut down before.
If all of the regulations were being followed then the owner should seek compensation through the court system. Unfortunately, unless someone filmed the whole thing, it’s going to end up one side’s word against the others.

My relationship with God is important to me. Every day I try to be thankful for what I have and live a simple life that’s compatible with Scripture. I try my best to appreciate the people around me and treat them the way I would like to be treated.

I don’t believe for one minute that being religious is enough to get a person to heaven – once I see my Savior’s face, I’ll know it was because of what he has done for me that allowed me an eternal joy – not because I was good enough or did all the right things. For this I am very thankful.

Thank you Erik for your hard work on this site. We all appreciate it.
Janice

Erik, thank you for sharing this. It must be a very liberal community to allow videotaping. I also was a bit surprised to hear harmony. I was touched by the lyrics, too.

Happy Thanksgiving to you, Erik, and to all the other people who share their “wealth” via comments, photos, experiences, on this website. I am thankful to have found it several years ago. May we all have something to be thankful for!

Alice Mary

I loved this beautiful singing.
And I note that the author of this wonderful song is from Bunker Hill, Ohio. I was born in 1934 and grew up in Bunker Hill! Now live in Vermont but I still connect with Ohio.

Amish Stands Closed For COVID Violations; Owner Feels "Targeted" By The County

Comment #690109 by Michael B Caron on 25.11.20, 21:49

This chain of comments documents quite clearly that anyone who tries to blame the Amish for what is happning in our nation right now is walking around with horse-blinders on. There are plenty of folks of all religious and political persuasions who have found one excuse or another to pretend their bone-headed behavior has nothing to do with the deaths of more than a quarter million Americans in less time than it took our enemies in the Pacific all of WW II, the Communists in the Korean War, and the Viet Cong & NVA in my war to kill all the Americans who died on those three Asian battlefields combined.YOU deniers managed to kill more of us in less than a year and wave a flag while doing it. Your war on science and truth may make you feel like patriots today, but one day soon you will realize history remembers those who aid the enemy by a different name.

Amish Stands Closed For COVID Violations; Owner Feels "Targeted" By The County

Comment #690107 by R Noll on 25.11.20, 18:18

What we are under right now is no less than Medical Tyranny. People thinking other people can affect their own health more than themselves…because that’s what the media has brainwashed them into thinking, and then stripping away personal freedom and liberty all because someone “might” get sick. People literally afraid of the air, and normal human contact. It’s ridiculous. The medical industry, and the media, both operate as fear-mongering factories. Then you add in power-hungry politicians and citizens who think they’re part of the STASI (look it up if you don’t know history)…and you have the situation we are facing. Not to mention the lies being told about hospital data. Many people think people are dying of this fake virus. They even think their family members have. In reality they have pneumonia, the flu, heart attacks, etc. But we name it something else based on a test that no one has standardized for a virus that has never been isolated. Give me a break. Wake up America it’s time to rise up.

Which Community Should You Visit? 7 Differences Between Lancaster County & Holmes County

Comment #690100 by J.O.B. on 25.11.20, 10:09

100% true.
There are signs that say “made in lancaster” or “locally made. They are often non-Amish businesses trying to manipulate and take advantage of tourists.
It’s not limited to quilts. But woodworking and food are often sold as locally/Lancaster made. But no Amish or mennonites are involved.
What I have noticed is, Many times, if you want something that is made by Amish, usually you order in advance and wait a month or longer for it to be made(quilts,woodworking).
It’s tough. Some Amish do make things for stores to sell. But it can be tough to know which is really made by Amish and which is not.

Also: A very popular eating place(buffet) in Lancaster has a large gift shop. There was a sign pointing to Amish made products…and directly next to it was a sign saying locally made. This was done to confuse customers/tourists by having the Amish made directly next to the locally made(non-amish). The business is run by a mennonite family so I was surprised they act this way. They know exactly what they are doing. So please pay attention.

That should have read “There is little doubt that compliance with this order is NOT the norm.” Sorry!

Comment #690094 by Walter Boomsma on 25.11.20, 05:18

I would take issue with the statement that it’s “hard to prove” he was targeted. Since there’s little doubt that compliance with this order is the norm, how many other businesses in the county have been shut down?

“If it looks like a duck and walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s probably a duck.”

Many people–not just government agencies–have become self-appointed Covid Cops. They are going to prey on marginalized populations and people they don’t like. There’s very little doubt that’s what happened here, particularly in view of the fact this is the second time it happened.

Amish In Australia?

Comment #690087 by Andy on 25.11.20, 01:49

If you prefer fellowshipping with Mennonites instead I’m available in Perth. The McCallum’s are essentially Beachy Amish that have adopted a horse and buggy lifestyle rather than New or Old Order Amish. Leave your details and I’ll be in touch.
