    Kevin, are you familiar with a group of German Baptist in central Indiana? I am not sure of the town/area but have a friend who married a gal from there. I previously lived in Indiana and I recall a group living back there.
    Just curious.

      I am familiar with them, they do not fellowship with the group in Darke County…I’ll write more about that in an upcoming post. Did your friend marry into the church?

        I am not sure what he did. I haven’t heard from him since I was down there last summer. I will try to find out tho

      Brenda, I had not heard anyone complain about the share buttons. I’ll test them and let you know! – Kevin

    what exactly is the difference in the Old Order German Baptist in Darke County and the Amish?

    1. Kevin

      Debbie, I will write more about it next week, but the OOGBs come from a completely different religious root…originated in a movement known as Pietism which began in the 1700s, whereas the Amish religious roots are a couple of centuries earlier. There are differences in theology, church structure, church doctrine (i.e. the OOGB’s don’t shun)….so while to the outsider they sure do LOOK Amish, there are many differences just below the surface…
