April/May 2020 Sermon Series
PHUMC will mark the Sundays following Easter with a sermon series titled, The Gospel Neighborhood of Mister Rogers, based on author Shea Tuttle’s book, Exactly As You Are: The Life and Faith of Mister Rogers.
Many of us may be familiar with the PBS program Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, or a few of Rogers’ iconic sayings, or just his simple red cardigan sweater and sneakers. However, Fred Rogers was an ordained Presbyterian pastor who used the new medium of television to reach and teach children how to cope with suffering, loss, confusion, pain, isolation: all the human situations with which we grown-ups continue to wrestle. Join us throughout Eastertide as we see the scripture through the lens and theology of a well-known and beloved Christian neighbor whose message of play, acceptance, humanity, forgiveness, and love reminds us again of new life and resurrection.
