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.

Thanksgiving at St. John's

It was another great Thanksgiving at St. John's. Unlike last year's frigid weather, this year it was quite warm. The parade started an hour earlier, and closer too, so we were done earlier too!

The Episcopal Church Women sold donuts and hot chocolate and coffee out the front door (it was still cold enough to drink that) and we also sold pancake breakfasts in the Undercroft. Sales were up from last year (too cold) but down from two years ago since parade got to St. John's an hour earlier.

Look at the crowds!
