Today, November 22, It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhoodopens to screens nationwide, a tribute to the life and work of Fred Rogers, played by actor Tom Hanks.  We Presbyterians are very proud to be associated with this particular pastor.   The Presbyterian Historical society celebrates the impact of this uniquely gifted child of God:

Fred Rogers grew up in western Pennsylvania in the town of Latrobe, where he attended Latrobe Presbyterian Church. As a student at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, where he majored in music composition, he had his first encounter with television, and was appalled by the children’s programs he saw. He thought, “Children deserve better.”   In 1953, he was invited by WQED in Pittsburgh, the nation’s first community-supported public television station, to co-produce a daily program called The Children’s Corner. The experience convinced him he had a future in children’s television.” https://www.history.pcusa.org/blog/remember...
