I just returned from a week in the Lancaster County Amish community. While there I attended the 2022 Amish conference at Elizabethtown College, and spent a lot of time with Amish friends. I’ll have a post sharing some favorite images from the trip coming soon.

I also recorded a short video from inside the buggy of a teenage son of one of my friends. It made a handy studio, though I dealt with a bit of noise from the passing cars.

When you haven’t been to a place in a couple of years, you tend to notice changes when you return. I talk about some of those in the video (as well as a few things that weren’t in fact new, but that I happened to notice for the first time, specifically regarding church service, which I attended Sunday morning). I hope you enjoy. Runtime: 5:10.
