Just wanted to give y’all a little humor for your day. =) This video probably won’t be funny to you if you don’t have Amish/Mennonite background…but if you do have any Mennonite in your blood, you really won’t be able to get through watching this without a few chuckles!
And actually you might just laugh too, even if you haven’t ever been Amish or Mennonite!
A little background to the story of this song—our family met John Schmid (the writer of this song) a few years ago through prison ministry. Somewhere along the way, we acquired several of his cds, and our younger ones promptly proceeded to listen to them over and over again and memorize the songs on them, specifically the “funny ones”.
Now, it really only works to perform this song in a crowd of mostly Mennonites/Amish, because those are the people who “get” the song. =) Our recent concert in Birky Square, Sarasota, Florida, almost two weeks ago, with around 600 people in attendance (mostly Amish, Mennonite, or ex) was the perfect place for Hudson’s “Amish Wedding” debut. =)
