This Is US: Acceptance
Play • 27 min

SERIES:  THIS IS US:  Forgiveness – Ken Wetmore

Fred “Mister” Rogers has been called the champion of radical acceptance. A Presbyterian minister, Mister Rogers took his cues about acceptance from Jesus. Jesus is the original champion of radical acceptance. Acceptance is not the endpoint of a relationship. It is the beginning. It allows transformation to occur in God’s time and God’s way.


This week our #WholeLifeTakeAways were: 

  • How do you struggle to accept? Which of the barriers to acceptance Ken spoke about are causing you to struggle? What do you need to do?
  • Think of Jesus’ interactions in the Gospels. How did he show acceptance for those he encountered?
  • Reflect on the people who have made you feel completely accepted. Reach out to at least one of them to express how they have made a difference in your life.
