On my drive to church this beautiful morning I passed scattered groups of Amish men, women and children, all dressed in Sunday best, walking the backroads of Lancaster County to the homes of fellow churchmembers where the day’s service would be held.
Suddenly, a raunchy red pickup containing a pair of suspiciously Amish-looking ‘hatted’ silhouettes pulled out in front of me and sped off ahead.
A few miles down the road, I caught up with the two young guys, who had parked just out of view of the home where church was taking place. Dressed to the nines, they hopped out and joined a crowd of younger boys walking up the road to service.
Rumspringa means you get to sleep in a bit on Sunday morning.
