Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 52 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.

Doing a google search...

... on the words PRAY HERE FOR THE TIGERS. Our Church/Banner is mentioned not only locally, but there is a google search reference going back a month for the Toronto Globe and Mail, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Post-tribune, Daytona Beach (FL) News-Journal, and Gary Indiana Post-Gazette. There is also a mention on the Wikipedia.com entry about Comerica Park.

The Detroit Free Press article was cut up and distributed by the Associated Press, and appears in shortened form in the Lansing State Journal, ClickonDetroit.com (Channel 4), Prosportsdaily.com and Midland Daily News

The word "PRAY" referencing the Tigers (but not mentioning the banner/Church) comes up frequently as well!

In the last few days, in addition to the Free Press and News, I have also been interviewed by Associated Press Radio, and the Los Angeles Times. Paul McDonald, the office manager fielded an interview with Reuters. I expect there will be more as we get closer to the games this weekend, especially from whatever city wins the honor of playing (and losing to) the Tigers in the World Series.
