    “I like to compare the holiday season with the way a child listens to a favorite story. The pleasure is in the familiar way the story begins, the anticipation of familiar turns it takes, the familiar moments of suspense, and the familiar climax and ending.”
    Fred Rogers

    Kenna, I live in Pittsburgh and Fred Rogers is an icon here. I understand that the Mr. Rogers series was filmed at WQED, Pittsburgh’s PBS affiliate. Fred Rogers also lived in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood, the same section where I live. Small world.

      I also as an adult liked Mr. Rogers.  But I also, like  Mr. Rogers, enjoy the wonder registered on a child's face, whether it is in the twists a new story can take after a familiar start or the magic of a new and different toy. There is also the effects of a new childs game, a new friend. The look on a kids face when going home from hospital when he or she catches sight of her or his Mum or Dad. I love to hear children in body of the church, their joyful chatter and Questions. This is the promise of our Future. I have never subscribed to the old Adage; (That Children should be seen and Not Heard.) I believe that (Children should be both SEEN and HEARD.) This does not mean that they cannot be disciplined or have no Boundaries. It does mean that children must be given the respect they are due regardless of age.

    No, he passed away before I moved here. However, several of my friends who live in the neighborhood remember him because they all attended the same church at the corner of Forbes & Murray here in the neighborhood. I’ve always heard only the very best about him.

    Kenna, what you’re doing here is a real treasure. I’m glad that you came up with the idea. Fred Rogers would approve too.
