Diann shared a couple of photos with us from a nice weekend drive here in Ohio. This is of an Old German Baptist Brethren meetinghouse on the east side of I-75 between Tipp City and New Carlisle. The Old German Baptist Brethren are heavily concentrated in this part of Ohio and can often be spotted in area supermarkets and shopping centers wearing their distinctive plain dress. These GBs should not be confused with the Old Order German Baptist Brethren. This far smaller church still uses horse-and-buggy and is clustered in a few small congregations near Covington, Ohio and Delphi, Indiana. The GBs, while considered a plain church, originated from a completely different religious movement than the Anabaptist Amish. The GBs are Pietists. One question I don’t know the answer to but would be curious to know is: do the Old ORDER GBs practice home-worship like the Amish? If anyone knows, let us know! As you can see here, the GBs do worship in a building known as a meetinghouse. Thanks for sharing, Diann! I will be posting more about the GBs in the weeks and months ahead.
