“Who has loved you into being?” (asked by Mr. Rogers)  
 
Ok, maybe it was being stuck in my house.  Maybe it was because I had Tom Hanks on my mind.  But the other night I watched “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.”  I loved Mr. Rogers as a child.  I think I wore out my Mr Rogers album.  He was a Presbyterian minister.  He was from Pittsburgh (the home town of both my parents).  And he made me feel good.  I would have been right along with the “wife” character telling her investigative reporter husband when he is interviewing Mr. Rogers, “Don’t ruin my childhood.”  I was more moved by the movie than I expected.  But one scene took my breath away.
 
Our reporter (who is a very damaged person) is sitting with Mr. Rogers in a restaurant trying to ask questions of Mr. Rogers, who keeps asking his own questions.  Eventually, Mr. Rogers says, “Will you just do something with me?” (and the whole restaurant quiets down to hear his request)  “Will you just take a minute, just a minute, to remember all the people who have loved you into being?”  And silence descends.  It made me tear because I started remembering the people I would put in this category.  So I invite us all to take a moment, and remember.  And if we can, if they are still here, or in our lives, maybe we could say thank you as well.

Rev. Becca
