Editors note even though surrounded by the rapidly changing modern world which might tempt some away the old order Amish Church More than holds its own in membership. By Gerald s. Lestz. Lancaster new Bra writer Lancaster a. A to a casual observer it might seem the old order Amish Church strictest of All the Quot Plain people a would have difficulty in keeping up its membership. Yet the opposite is True its numbers Are growing steadily. The old order Amish base their rules of life strictly on their interpretation of the Bible. Surrounded As they Are by the modern world they still live As their forefathers before them. For example they have no electricity in their Homes and barns. They do not own or drive cars. Instead of buttons they use Hooks and eyes on their clothes. Their children Are not allowed to attend High school or College. They ban photographs of the self holding them to be Quot Graven developed in 1409s the Amish a protestant Reli Ous sect developed from the mennonites in the late 1600s. They took their name from Jacob Ammann a Swiss mennonite Leader. They came to this country with the mennonites in Large numbers after 1740 and settled mainly in Pennsylvania Ohio and Indiana. In Lancaster county where they have lived nearly 250 years old order Amish families continue to have an average of seven to nine children. They Are estimated to have nearly doubled their population in this county in 20 years from 3,360 to 6,216. In a similar period the county population now about 63,000 went up 30 per cent and Pennsylvania increased 14 per cent. These figures Surprise Many of their Lancaster county neigh English As the Amish know them id any thought that Bors the Christian a missionary Alliance Church sunday 9 45 . A sunday school.

But the growth also has been evidenced by the boost in the number of Church District of this highly conservative group. Size of the District is attuned to the number who can attend sunday service in a farm Home travelling by horse and buggy. Church statistics show the number of districts going up each year. Concessions made concessions have been made Over the decades by the Bishops the ordained elder men who Lead the order so that in some respects the Amish Are current with their neighbors while in others they May be 200 years behind. Thus an old order Amish family while being denied use of wired electricity May have a Gas refrigerator or a Gas stove served by Quot bottled fuel. While a member in Good standing May not drive an Auto he May accept a lift from a neighbor. He May ride a train or a bus and Many Amish persons do. He expresses curiosity about air planes but does not Fly in them. Diesel Power is permitted and some ingenious a Ishmen have used this to make Home life easier. Thus one Young Farmer has running water in his Home through Gravity. He pumps water by diesel to an elevated tank behind the barn three times a week. He has an inside toilet although in Amish country the old time a priv vyv is still the Rule. Clothing is severe Amish clothing is As severe in appearance As the religion is in practice. But one Amish patriarch when asked if the trend to Shorter skirts in the modern world had affected the Amish answered with a twinkle in his Eye. Quot there is a slight tendency in that a he told a newsman. Quot i done to think you would notice it much but we the men Wear Flat Black hats with Broad brims and Black Coats and trousers.

July 2 Start of lutheran Church in americans 2nd annual convention in Pittsburgh. All members Are Welcome to for today by Earl l. Douglass the apostle Peter along with the apostle Paul is the most significant and influential believer that has Ever lived. We read in the 18th chapter of the gospel of John that on the night of our lords arrest Peter who had boasted that he would never forsake Jesus did indeed forsake him and declared with an oath that he did not even know the Man. Then we read that Only a few months later this same Man Peter defied the authorities who had forbidden him to preach and stood so firmly in his position that when his opponents saw his boldness and that of his companion John they were astounded. Here were two uneducated unknown men who dared to stand out against the Power and privilege of their Day. Furthermore Peter the Craven Coward had become a person of such spiritual stature that he was performing miracles Healing the sick and afflicted. All that his opponents could do was to shake their Heads and mutter to themselves that this Man had turned from Coward to hero from a person of no consequence to one who performed divine miracles and All this had been because he had been with Jesus in the truest sense of the term. He had not Only fellow shipped with Jesus he had been with him. For All his wavering his denial his flight he had still never ceased to love Jesus. Today As in those ancient Days Faith in Christ gives us courage fills us with boldness and makes us Resolute As we confront opposition. Peters contemporaries took knowledge of him that he had been with Jesus.
