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.

A good weekend!

What a wonderful weekend this was.

On Friday in the morning I had Police Chaplain work for the Annual Memorial Service at Old St. Mary's, downtown. We marched from Campus Martius to Greektown for the service. Yes, I am in the first picture, on the right side, in my Chaplain's Uniform.
In the afternoon we had baseball for Sam and Andrew (won 5-0) and William (won 15-5).

On Saturday it was Sam's birthday. We took a trip to Southgate to Commonwealth Displays, the 'mecca' for those doing high-powered rocketry to spend Sam's birthday money on rocket stuff.

Then we had baseball game for Sam and Andrew - also won 5-0. Afterwards we had some friends over for cake and ice cream and to sing Happy Birthday.
Sunday we worshipped the Lord in the beauty of holiness in the morning, and then went to Jackson to launch model rockets! Sam received several gifts from the men at the club, including some hybred motor casings. He capped the day by doing his first hybred rocket - H78 size. He is pictured here with Scott, who helped him with it.
After driving back, we finished the weekend with a 7pm baseball practice for William!
