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.

Overdue pictures from my trip to Milwaukee.

Some things to note of the interior of the Cathedral -

The seven hanging lamps in the sanctuary, signifying the lamps in the temple and the gifts of the Spirit. Had these in Rosemont when I was curate there.

Also, note the interior sanctuary color....it is the color the sanctuary was at St. John's until 1915 or so. I like it (especially if you were to see the stenciling added at St. John's in gold leaf).
