Every Day, He Taught God's Message Without Preaching a Word.

He was their neighbor, their friend. And for over thirty years, Fred Rogers visited so quietly with the children of America that nobody dreamed he was a Presbyterian minister. Using puppets instead of a pulpit, this icon of children's television shared with America's youngsters the basic principles of the Christian faith - forgiveness, kindness, compassion, respect - and made those values real for his audience. In this poignant audio book, a longtime friend of Mister Rogers reveals how this extraordinary man touched her and her family through years of correspondence - and takes us beyond the camera to discover the spiritual legacy of a man who, to paraphrase the words of St. Francis of Assisi, "preached the gospel at all times and, when necessary, used words."

    This is a fantastic book that I really should have on my bookshelf. Thoughtful and deep in looking at faith through the lens of Mister Rogers and his faith. Very inspiring.

    I have always been a fan of Mister Rogers and while growing up in the early 70's I loved watching his show. I came across this book in the library where I work and I just had to check it out. It was a great story by the author who had a longtime correspondence and friendship with Fred. The book showed me who the real Fred Rogers was and gave me a better understanding now as an adult what Mister Roger's Neighborhood was about.

    Basic info with a smattering of ableist BS. Skip this. Watch the movie.

    I was born '85 and so missed a good portion of his show, but do have many fond memories of watching his show. Plus, I had never thought his show as religious, just thought was show how be good person. That right there tells me how good of minister was because was something that everyone of any religion could watch and feel comfortable with

    The basis of his faith was that he truly believed that all people were worth loving. He lived a quiet life and tried to be a good example for those around him. It was truly a life lived in actions more than words

    I mistakingly thought this book was what the Netflix documentary was based on. Sadly this book is chocked full of out and out scripture and religion. I understand Mr. Roger’s was a religious man, a pastor, but he taught without drowning his message in direct scripture and religious dribble. He taught us we were loved, to love others, to be kind, to celebrate individuality as well as community. I found the author’s message to be clouded, for me, by the constant mention of God, of scripture, etc.

    This was an easy read and a book that presented the hidden ministry side of Fred Rogers' Neighborhood. Amy (the author) presented little-known facts relating to the "ministry" Fred Rogers through his show, Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. Did you know that Fred Rogers received at least twenty-five honorary doctorates? That he filmed over 900 episodes of his show and wrote over 200 songs? That his shows were scripted and ad libbing (even with guests) was not allowed or at a minimum? Most intriguing about Mister Roger's faith was his persona of "Mother Teresa in Cardigan," Fred's solid spiritual invocation at the 1992 graduation commencement service at Boston University, and this simple story that he liked to share.... Fred once told me (the author) a story that I know he liked to repeat often. “I heard this true story of this child, a little four-year-old boy whose mother and dad had just brought home a baby sister,” he said. “Sound familiar to you?” Then he laughed. I had almost the identical scenario at home when Fred and I first met. “He pleaded with his mother and dad to have some private time with this baby; in fact, insisted. Well, the mother and dad were concerned; they thought maybe he was planning to hurt that baby. Finally he won. And he walked into the baby’s room, and the mother and dad thought, ‘We will just stay at the door to be sure that the baby is safe.’ The little boy simply walked up to the crib, looked at the baby, and said, ‘tell me what it was like, I’m beginning forget.’ Out of the mouths of babes, you know. So heaven doesn’t have any boundaries.”[1]In closing, consider more of Rogers' ministry and passion as he responded to the author's interview question about a final message Fred would want to share in his "final" broadcast... The very last time I saw Fred in person, I asked him a question for no apparent reason, except perhaps out of idle curiosity. It didn’t fit in with the rest of the interview or even the context of what we were talking about at the moment. In fact, I didn’t even remember asking it until I looked back at the interview tape years later. Hearing his answer again, after his death, I found that his words had a “quality of eternity” about them, as if they were spoken from eternity and not from the conversation we happened to be having that day.“If you had one final broadcast,” I asked, “one final opportunity to address your television neighbors, and you could tell them the single most important lesson of your life, what would you say?”He paused a moment and then said, ever so slowly:“Well, I would want [those] who were listening somehow to know that they had unique value, that there isn’t anybody in the whole world exactly like them and that there never has been and there never will be.And that they are loved by the Person who created them, in a unique way.If they could know that and really know it and have that behind their eyes, they could look with those eyes on their neighbor and realize, ‘My neighbor has unique value too; there’s never been anybody in the whole world like my neighbor, and there never will be.’ If they could value that person – if they could love that person – in ways that we know that the eternal loves us, then I would be very grateful.”[2]--------------------------------------------------------------------------------[1] Amy Hollingsworth, The Simple Faith of Mister Rogers, p. 155.[2] Amy Hollingsworth, The Simple Faith of Mister Rogers, p. 161.Another must read for your personal or professional library!!!
