The Simple Faith of Mister Rogers
The Simple Faith of Mister Rogers: Spiritual Insights from the World's Most Beloved Neighbor | Amy Hollingsworth
Tom Brokaw of NBC Nightly News once said of the American icon Fred Rogers, "Mister Rogers was an ordained minister, but he never talked about God on his program. He didn't need to." Eight years before his death, Fred Rogers met author, educator, and speaker Amy Hollingsworth. What started as a television interview turned into a wonderful friendship spanning dozens of letters detailing the driving force behind this gentle man of extraordinary influence. Educator? Philosopher? Psychologist? Minister? Here is an intimate portrait of the real Mister Rogers. The Simple Faith of Mr. Rogers focuses on Mr. Rogers' spiritual legacy, but it is much more than that. It shows us a man who, to paraphrase the words of St. Francis of Assisi, "preached the gospel at all times; when necessary he used words."

Loved loved his show as a child. Love that this book explored his faith. Fred Rogers was an incredible man!

Everything in this book that comes straight from Fred Rogers is amazing. I am an agnostic, & if every Christian were like Mister Rogers I would have zero problem with Christianity. The way the author organized the book detracts from the message. Toast sticks? Whut?! It‘s like she‘s trying to make it Chicken Soup for the Soul, & Mister Rogers deserves better. Read this if you can appreciate the message without being distracted by the messenger.

Individuation is a Jungian term which refers to a lifelong process of integrating influences and instincts that make a person whole, a discovery of uniqueness. ...also... the idea that we become who we were meant to be, by design, not just who we think we should be.

merelybookish Love some Jungian psychology! 10mo

This was a quick read and gave me the warm fuzzies. Mr. Rogers was a very wise man and we could all take a cue from him. This book is full of little tidbits of wisdom. I plan on letting Jace watch Mr. Rogers when he is a bit older. 4⭐️

jillannjohn This morning I was talking to my son about Mr. Rogers and realized he‘d never seen the show! He‘s 16 but I‘m going to make him watch at least 1. Everyone should know Mr. Rogers! 1y
vkois88 LO LOVES Mr. Rogers. She sings the theme with him ?? We watch it, and Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood (the Contemporary spin-off). She sees him on the screen and yells "Daniel!" before singing and snapping along ?? 1y
JenlovesJT47 @jillannjohn @vkois88 that‘s awesome! I‘m going to try to get some on DVD. ☺️ 1y

Listened to the audio of this book. It was a nice short audiobook and I enjoyed learning more about mister Rogers. The author narrated it so it‘s not as polished as other audiobooks I‘ve listened to.

I grew up watching Mr. Rogers Neighborhood and I learned so much from it. This is a great book to learn more about him and his faith.

It‘s Red Nose Day today in the USA. As a pharmacist for Walgreens, it‘s one of our favorite fundraising charities. Fighting hard to end child poverty, one nose at a time! Also, who taught us better than Mister Rogers how to treat our neighbors? Plus, #redcover so, win/win. 😁🔴 #noseson #everyonecounts #rednoseday #rednosedayusa

Even though this was one of the only things on my wishlist, I still cried when I opened this tonight. I just love Mr Fred McFeely Rogers so MUCH. He was such an uncommonly good and gentle man. We weren't worthy!

Joybishoptx Awe. So true. I miss him. 3y
LuLeeBelle @Joybishoptx Every time something terrible happens in the news (which is so often lately) I watch his video clip about looking for helpers and bawl 3y
Joybishoptx Yes. I know. I feel the same way. 3y

Waking up to news of yet more unfathomable violence, I turn again to Mister Rogers for words of en-courage-ment.
