"Look to the Children" | Who's My Neighbor? Lessons from the Life and Faith of Mr. Rogers, Ep. 2 | Sept. 29, 2019
This Sunday we begin a sermon series titled "Who's My Neighbor: Lessons on life and faith with Mr. Rogers." Fred Rogers was ordained by the Presbyterian church to a special ministry--teaching children on television. For 30 years, he ignored the cultural trends and TV norms and managed to inspire generations of children to follow a path of loving kindness. We begin this week with a reflection on what it means to be a neighbor, inspired by Mr. Roger’s ministry and drawn from the text of Jesus’ parable about the Good Samaritan.
First Reading: Romans 12:9-17
Second Reading: Luke 10:25-37
