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.

The Eve of Christmas Eve

With all our shopping done a few weeks ago, everything baked and distributed that needs to be baked, meals planned and put together in the fridge/freezer for our house full of guests this weekend, and the grey weather enveloping us makes today, the eve of Christmas Eve, a 'blah' sort of day! The morning was spent putting the finishing touches on cleaning for all the company coming starting today (Laura, Troy and godson Seth arrived at 1:30pm), but no other plans for the day. The rest of the guests arrive at various times tomorrow.

One disappointment - we never received the Christmas Invite here at home, bulk mailed December 14th. The Eagle, mailed Thursday, arrived today. I am afraid that post office lost or put aside those invites (did anyone else receive theirs?). I'm having a hard time offering that one up if it is true. But the radio ads sounded wonderful all week. And the newspaper ads looked good too. I hope many will be drawn to services for Christmas.
