March 24, 2016
Westfield Republican

St. Peter's Episcopal Church of Westfield welcomed the best-selling author of the "Amish of Lancaster Series," Sarah Price, recently as part of the church's "Who Is My Neighbor?" series.

Price is also a dancer, explorer, breast cancer survivor, and a genuinely funny person who loves to convey the richness of the hard, yet simplistic, Amish way of life.

She provided insightful stories about a people we might not otherwise know: notably the families, gatherings, sharing of resources, living in community, and worship.

There are two prominent references for faith among the Amish: the Bible, and "Martyrs Mirror" (1,512 pages of the history and letters documenting their persecution since the time of Christ). They would become "House Worshipers."

Following the Anabaptist movement, the Amish would distinguish themselves from the Mennonites in 1693, by following a more strict discipline. As demonstrated in their daily activities, Amish are mindful and intentional about prideful issues.
