Most likely you heard about the shooting in the Amish school, where a man shoot and killed several young girls. Well the Amish are truly amazing. They have begun to demonstrate such Christ likeness in this situation. One person stated that while he was in the kitchen with the gunman's family "an Amish neighbor came to the house and wrapped his arms around the father of the dead gunman. 'We will forgive you,' the man said." (Lancaster online)
The Amish have not only expressed forgiveness in their words they have also begun to demonstrate it in their actions. They have set up funds for the families whose children died or were wounded and for the gunman's family. (cbc) Instead of being bitter and unforgiving the Amish have chosen the way of Christ.
