Mr. Rogers, God, and You: Nurturing Simple Faith
Saturday, April 18, 2020, 9:00 AM
9 a.m. to noon.
Online via Zoom video conference.
Join in a quiet half-day, inspired by Fred Rogers’ simple faith. Nurture the body, mind, and heart by co-creating a space that enables you to search for God and draw nearer to the Holy. We will explore Rogers’ wisdom and spiritual insights though prayer, journaling, reflection, music, and interactive sharing.
Fred Rogers was the much-loved host of the public television show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, which ran on PBS from 1968-2001. A Presbyterian minister, his simplicity and sincerity is a lasting legacy for those who grew up with Mr. Rogers -- as either a parent, a teacher, or a child.
