Sermon title: "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" (sermon series: "The Wisdom of Mr. Rogers")
Sermon text: Luke 15:8-10
When Mr. Rogers asks us, “Could you be mine? Would you be mine? Won’t you be my neighbor?” he is taking that same risk, making himself vulnerable in the same way, inviting someone to become part of the very fabric of his life.
Inviting someone to be your neighbor is an invitation that can and often is turned down. Being rejected is no picnic. But Mr. Rogers would say it’s always worth the risk.
