Overview
Isaac Horst presents his beloved Old Order Mennonite (OOM) community to a group touring the Mennonite country of Ontario. In Martin's Meetinghouse, he explains baptism, counsel meeting, conference of ministers, communion, feet washing, ordinations, and funerals. At a schoolhouse, Horst tells about the parochial school system. They visit farms, shops, and a barn raising. Horst shares subjects tested with an Elderhostel, such as marriage, roles of women and men, raising children, the unequal yoke, and mutual aid. Finally, a granddaughter's questions let grandpa share his wisdom. This book, based on Horst's experience and on counsel from fellow members, deftly gives an account of OOMs and their separate life.
