“Where Are You From?”

Written by: Karolyn Hofer on Tuesday, February 11th, 2020

As an opening topic for my blog, I asked some friends,  “What are some commonly asked questions none-Hutterites ask Hutterites?” I got some important, and yes, predictable responses, but by far the most interesting was, “Where are you from?” Where am I from? Seeing we are dressed differently, and speak a foreign language, I always imagine a faraway, improbable country people expect when they ask us, “Where are you from?” But then we have to answer, “I live near Rochester,” or “near Brandon,” near Sioux Falls, or Winnipeg.

A New Years Prayer

Written by: Louie Vetter on Monday, December 30th, 2019

Heavenly Father, we come to you in prayer at the start of this New Year with bended knee and humble heart. We start by first giving you thanks for the year that just went by. We thank you for keeping watch over us and shielding us from the many misfortunes and disasters that undoubtedly swayed over our heads and homes. From fires and floods, from accidents and calamities, and from Satan himself who stalks around the House of God like a roaring lion to see whom he can trick or beguile into his dark empire with his traps and snares.

AS LONG AS THE EARTH REMAINS, THERE WILL BE PLANTING AND HARVEST,  COLD AND HEAT, SUMMER AND WINTER, DAY AND NIGHT." GENESIS 8:22

On a Hutterite colony, typically one couple is in charge of the vegetable garden. They’re the ones who decide what will be planted, when the garden needs weeding or produce is ready to be picked. For these tasks, the women’s work group and sometimes the men and older children will help as well. When it’s a smaller task, like digging a few boxes of carrots for the kitchen, the gardener couple will do it with....

Watch Therefore. By Guest Writer Sarah M. Hofer

'Blessed are those servants, whom the Lord when He cometh shall find watching.' Luke 12:37

We Hutterites are now living in a golden age. Never before in our history has there been such a long period where the authorities have left us alone to live and worship as we wish. The communities we live in are safe, secure and prosperous.

Around us, the world is changing at an incredibly rapid pace. The Christian worldview that has shaped societies for over two thousand years is under fire and i....
