    That is interesting about the new settlement in Gosport, In. You should come and visit the new settlement of the Amish here in Bloomingdale, Mi
    They just had a large consignment auction for their new school. We have quite a few new families in the area.

    Kevin, could you clarify the meaning of the second sentence, the word “Anusg”? I thought maybe the fingers were on the wrong keys.

    this is a terrific idea. unfortunately, this business of being more forgiving of others aka outsiders is quite common in most spiritual communities.

    I think Pinecraft here in Sarasota is also a settlement where people are given second chances, both Amish and Mennonites.

    Kevin, I’m wondering why the Amish haven’t found anything here in the Butler County area? Is it the traffic? Or maybe feeling not wanted? Their money is just as green!!
    I think knowing I’d have a 2nd chance would be a freeing experience. like a really fresh breath of air. The Amish are not very forgiving of their own. Shunning is not a forgiving action. I don’t understand it but then they probably don’t understand a lot of our ways either. I’ve wondered for a long time how it would be to personally know an Amish person or family.
    Hope you are getting some much needed rest & your own breath of fresh air!!
    Hang in there. Hello to the Eicher family.
