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.

Bang, bang, bang.....

That is the sound of the construction going on on Woodward Avenue in front of the Church.

Having raised the bridge over I-75 six inches, they are now raising the road bed in front of the Church to meet the new height of the bridge.

Note the pile of dirt/stones near the corner of Montcalm Ave. It is up to the "Episcopal Church Welcomes You" sign which is about 10 feet high. Oh the temptation to climb it!!!
