A Loving Mystery
The older I get the more I feel this is true, “There is a loving mystery at the heart of the universe, just yearning to be expressed”
Fred Rogers, in I’m Proud of You: My Friendship with Mr. Rogers
Our friend, author and sportswriter Tim Madigan, is traveling to Hershey, PA, to share about the mission and work of Someone To Tell It To, on Saturday, February 2. He will be our special guest and speaker at a dinner at the What-If Restaurant, 845 E. Chocolate Ave., at 6:00p.m.
Tim had a very special relationship with the late Fred Rogers – Mr. Rogers of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood and has written movingly and lovingly about their friendship in the best-selling book: I’m Proud of You: My Friendship with Mr. Rogers. Tim will talk about what he learned from that friendship, on February 2, and will relate it to our mission of providing caring and compassion, of offering safety and solace, of giving guidance and grace to those seeking a listening ear.
Tim understands that we all need relationships in our lives that provide intimacy, depth and authenticity. He has become an expert in giving voice to those needs and has endorsed our efforts to foster that understanding through Someone To Tell It To. Our personal relationship is a model for that message and we are very proud to have Tim speak to that model with us and for us. He will remind us all of the home in which we all need to live – in a place where we can be our true selves and where we are loved just the way we are.
Recently, Tim shared a short video about Fred Rogers on his Facebook page. We hope that you will take two minutes to view it to see and feel the warmth and graciousness that Fred Rogers – a hero of ours – brought to his life and work. You will be touched as you remember again how comforting and reassuring this remarkable man was.
If you live in the central PA area and can come to hear Tim on February 2, there are still two more days to reserve your place at the table. The tickets are $50.00/person. Simply message us on Facebook, reply to our blog post or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org,, by noon EST on Friday. We’d love to have you there. You will surely be inspired.
