Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 51 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.

Sharing a picture

This is from the gathering of bishops at the GAFCON in Jerusalem! Awesome. I remember a bishop once telling me that his impression of a Lambeth Conference is that the only thing holding the Anglican Communion together is the finery from Wippells (an English Church goods company). If you look closely, however, you see a variety of clothing: low church rochet to high church cassock and biretta. A few seem to be in suits. Perhaps not everyone got the memo on what to wear.....

This location is on the Mount of Olives overlooking the old city of Jerusalem. Every tourist group coming to the Holy Land gets their photo taken at the spot.

If you click on the photo to enlarge it, Bishop Keith Ackerman of Quincy (my bishop protector) is second from the left in full High Church apparel!
The second photo of the post originally published has been removed from the site by the host, so I have edited the story on 1 July 2008
