“The Gospel of Mister Rogers,” Amada Seligman

The visionary Presbyterian minister Fred Rogers sang, “Won’t you be my neighbor?” at the start of his long-running children’s television show. In this sermon, UCN member Amanda Seligman explores Mister Rogers’ teachings and how his messages keep resonating two decades after his death. Spoiler alert: he modeled how to show your love for others by being fully present and practicing kindness.
