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.

Youth Sunday - and MORE BAPTISMS!

This Sunday we have our Youth Appreciation Sunday. Going through the list of parishioners and regular attenders, we have upwards on 50 pre-school and school-aged children in the parish, PLUS another 12 babies under one year old! Now if we could motive better Sunday School attendance!

We add three more children to the parish rolls through the waters of baptism this Sunday. Tatiana (4 years old), Jack and Gordon (8 month old twins) Hudson-Nelson will become children of God and Heirs of the Kingdom at the 10am Service!

Please pray for them as they are prepared to come to the font on Sunday!

This makes our 12th, 13th and 14th Baptism this year already - DEO GRATIAS!
