Welcome to Mennonite Country

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Welcome to Mennonite Country

Yes, Guatemala is becoming a magnet destination for all kinds of religious groups. I believe this is the second time I spotlight the Mennonites in Antigua Guatemala, Portrait of a Mennonite in Antigua Guatemala was the first post nearly two years ago. I have also shared with you pictures of Mormons, Jews, Muslims, Protestants, and lots of Catholics.

I believe there are huge differences between the Amish and the Mennonites, but I do not know what they are. Can someone come forward with what makes Amish and Mennonites different and what do they have in common?

    These must be old world Mennonites. Most Mennonites look just like everyone else. I am 100% Mennonite by faith and heritage and I wear normal jeans and t-shirts. We live in normal homes and drive normal vehicles. It is just a branch/denomination of the Protestant faith… And we make some pretty good food!

    And there is a third group http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hutterite The three denominations are branches of the Anabaptists. Also echoing LucyT comment… our friend LD is a Mennonite, which in her case is pretty much just another Protestant denomination.

    The Amish don’t own cars and meet in church members’ homes rather than in a church building. They are baptized at 18 after they have made a choice between the “Yankee” world and the Amish life. There are certain transgressions a person can make in the Amish community which causes them to be “shunned” or forbidden to live in the community.

  • Thank you guys for all your wonderful feedback.
