The Amish culture is very interesting to me, I wonder what its origins are? Amish are originally from Switzerland. They are mostly farmers who live a simple life in accordance with their beliefs.

The Amish life is guided by two key concepts. One is the rejection of pride and arrogance and practicing humility in every aspect of life. The other is that of calmness and placidity which can be translated into submission to the will of God. It is these two principles that forbid a number of practices like the use of technology based on the belief that it might make one too independent. Family and community is second priority outside their religious beliefs. PLAIN & SIMPLE.

The Amish are most known for their strict dedication towards their religious beliefs, which in turn affects how they use technology and what clothes they wear. If you live in or around the Lancaster, Pennsylvania area, chances are you've seen a horse-pulled wooden buggy transporting a group of Amish individuals before.

Custom Amish Dolls--Our Amish dolls are all handmade by a local amish lady. All of her dolls are faceless because the Amish people do not believe in using mirrors or photographs and the faceless dolls represent this belief. They believe that a "graven image" belongs only to God.

The Campus Store - Selected Item
AMISH GRACE explores the many questions this story raises about the religious beliefs and habits that led the Amish to forgive so quickly. It looks at the ties between forgiveness and membership in a cloistered communal society and ask if Amish practices parallel or diverge from other religious and secular notions of forgiveness. It will also address the matter of why forgiveness became news. By Donald B. Kraybill, Steven M. Nolt, David L. Weaver-Zercher
