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.

The cold continues - now inside!

7 1/2 days until the Tigers report for Spring Training (at least the pitchers and catchers). There was a story in the news today about the Tigers staff packing up equipment at Comerica to take down to Florida. Lucky dogs!

Meanwhile back here in Detroit, the furnace is out at St. John's. This happens once a year or so. The chapel was 46 degrees at lunchtime Wednesday for Mass (makes for pretty cold hands holding the chalice!) We hope to have it repaired sometime late tomorrow morning/early afternoon. The water pipes in the furnace rooms are being kept from freezing with a series of space heaters.

The heating system is scheduled to be updated and boiler/s replaced this Spring...the new boilers are on order! Ralph Burton always says that I should use my continuing education money to go to Heating and Air-Conditioning School!
