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.

Who would have thought it?

The Cardinals beat the Tigers tonight 4-2, to win the series 4 games to 1. Bummer.

Thank God for a very good season for our neighbors, the Tigers (only a few wins away from the best type of season - championship).

After an amazing 3 year turn around, it was great to see them play so well during the regular season, beat the Yankees and sweep the A's in the play-offs, and play in the World Series...but I do wish they hadn't committed those errors in the past four days!

Hey...about 110 days until the pitchers and catchers report for Spring Training (mid-February), and only 157 days until Opening Day 2007, - Monday, April 2nd versus Toronto (tentative). PRAY HERE FOR THE TIGERS Service will be on April 1st, 2007!

In 15 months we hosted the All-Star game, Super Bowl, and World Series in our neighborhood. It is all good for the neighborhood and St. John's.

I hope this coming year will be the year the local teams are able to finish off their seasons with championships. The region watched as the Pistons, Red Wings, and for most of the season the Tigers had the best records in their leagues their past season, only to lose in the play-offs or championship series. At least the Shock won their championship. The Lions have some rebuilding to do still.
