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.

Blessing the new sign...waiting to be reimbursed

On July 2nd, after the 10am service, we went outside and blessed our new sign. We prayed that it would be a beacon light to all those coming downtown, and an opportunity to bring people to Jesus!

All the paperwork has been completed for our 50% reimbursement for the new safety glass, parking lot edge garden improvements, retaining wall repairs, awnings, and new sign. This is now delayed because a group of atheists are suing the quasi-governmental agency that we have a contract with, so it might be some time before we see any reimbursement. Meanwhile we continue our fundraising for our half, as well as the anticipated repairs to the furnace this fall.
