Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 51 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

Sam's Birthday Today!

It is hard to believe that 10 years ago my oldest son, Sam, was born at Bryn Mawr Hospital (PA). It seems like just yesterday that he was a newborn, yet 5 years ago when we moved here he was the age that my youngest son, William, is now! Tempus Fugit!
Of course for presents he got lots of rocket stuff. I made his favorite big breakfast (eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, bagels). For his birthday dinner he wanted Beef Burgundy in the Crockpot, which he helped make with Jennifer. He also helped bake his double layer carrot cake.

After his and Andrew's karate testing we rushed home for his big dinner. We find out Monday how he did on the testing (either advanced purple or green - two belts from black)

Happy Birthday Sam!
