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.

25 minutes until the Good Friday Service begins.

Heavenly Father, help me to be grateful for those who are able to come today, and those who were able to come yesterday and Wednesday, and not build up a resentment for those who have not been here for Holy Week Services....

Give me the wisdom and grace to be a better teacher and motivator so that more and more people will recognize the importance of these Three Holy Days (and coming to Church EVERY Sunday as well), to Worship You, and that we may not be distracted by the cares of the World, the Flesh and the Devil.
