A Moving Monday: Fred Rogers Inducted into the Hall of Fame (1999)

 In From Your Lead Pastor...


In 1999, Fred Rogers from Mister Roger’s Neighborhood, which aired from 1968-2001, was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame. He was thrilled to see Jeffrey Erlinger, a child who was on his show at five years old and sharing about his condition.

Fame is a four-letter word, he says. What matters is what we do with it. We are servants, helping to meet the deeper needs of those who watch and listen.

He also asks, “How can we make goodness attractive?” He invokes in his own words the second part of the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:34-40).

I hope you will listen to this!

On the original show, Rogers sang one of his own compositions, It’s You I Like (1971):

It’s you I like,
It’s not the things you wear,
It’s not the way you do your hair
But it’s you I like
The way you are right now,
The way down deep inside you
Not the things that hide you,
Not your toys
They’re just beside you.

But it’s you I like
Every part of you.
Your skin, your eyes, your feelings
Whether old or new.
I hope that you’ll remember
Even when you’re feeling blue
That it’s you I like,
It’s you yourself
It’s you.
It’s you I like.
