I believe that appreciation is a holy thing--that when we look for what's best in a person we happen to be with at the moment, we're doing what God does all the time. So in loving and appreciating our neighbor, we're participating in something sacred.

ed·i·fy /ˈedəˌfī/ v. to instruct or improve (someone) morally or intellectually.
This evening I watched a nine-part interview with Fred Rogers conducted in 1999 by Karen Herman of the Archive of American Television. It was outstanding. This man's reverence, gentleness, awareness, and care are still unmatched.
The archive of the interview is here.
