Amish Ordnung

Last fall I concluded the study of What the Bible Teaches About Salvation with an introduction to and overview of what the Amish believe about salvation.

In that lesson I briefly discussed the ordnung. This morning I read this and thought it an interesting and helpful explanation from an Amishman:

This is an interesting example about the nature of Ordnung. It is not so much a set of arbitrary rules and regulations handed down from some authoritative council somewhere, rather it is a set of understandings about expected behavior that is refined and modified by an informal process of practical testing and subtle negotiation. It is a model for a way of life.
