Learning from Mister Rogers

Do you remember watching Mister Rogers Neighborhood?

I remember watching it as a kid. I haven’t even thought of the show until recently. I saw a trailer for the movie. I thought it was interesting until I read “The Simple Faith of Mister Rogers: Spiritual Insights from the World’s Most Beloved Neighbor,” by Amy Hollingsworth. Now I want to see the movie and learn more about Mister Rogers.

In her book, Hollingsworth shares stories from her interactions and friendship with Fred Rogers, a.k.a., Mister Rogers. I never knew so much about him. After reading the book I feel like I know Fred/Mister Rogers better as a person. Here are a few things I learned from Mister Rogers through Hollingsworth book,

  1. Mister Rogers was real and intentional,
  2. He practiced silence and moving slow,
  3. He truly loved people.

There is so much more to learn from reading “The Simple Faith of Mister Rogers: Spiritual Insights from the World’s Most Beloved Neighbor.” I just hope the movie does is just as good.

Think about it!
