Question:

I have recently moved to a small community to minister to a church of Christ. I found your article on the Amish very interesting as we have a rather large sect of Amish in the county.

What I thought you might find interesting is that the Amish here have recently gone through a split due to the younger generation wanting to use tractors to farm. I do not know when this all transpired; however, it caused a real division between the old and young. You will still see them in their horse-drawn buggies, but they are now plowing with modern, yet old, tractors. They will also not turn down a ride to town in a car.

Thanks for your website. It has lots of great information.

Answer:

I'm glad you are finding the information useful. And thank you for the update on recent trends among the Amish.
