For Christmas Eve, Rev. Cari preached on Mr. Rogers… well, she preached about Jesus’ incarnation, but she referred to Fred Rogers: his TV ministry, the movie that recently came out about his relationship with a journalist who was assigned to interview him, and the 2018 documentary that tells his story.
Her text was John 1:1-14, from The Inclusive Bible, which begins:
In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was in God’s presence,
and the Word was God.
The invitation of Christmas is to respond to God’s presence in Christ in the most authentic ways each of us can… because “you make the world a special place by just your being you.”
