Introduction

Belonging to a people is a precious thing. The Old Order Amish know this. They are sustained by an abiding sense of community, the spirit of historic faith, the call of disciplines, and the joyful restraint of beauty.

Yet life for the Amish is not a fairy tale. They, too, are visited by disappointment, grief, and failure. But on balance, the embrace of community, the harvest after the toil, the peace form following God, and the promise in the eyes of the young people all lead to a deep sense of contentment.
--Merle Good from An Amish Portrait.
