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.

a connection to a candidate

I am not endorsing any candidate or party (no need to raise the ire of such groups as People for the American Way or People United for the Separation of Church and State), but it might be interesting to note a connection to a candidate.

I was a fraternity brother at Penn with Senator (VP Candidate) Joseph Biden's son - now Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden (aka Joseph R. Biden III). Beau was a few years behind me at Penn and we overlapped at the Psi Upsilon Fraternity. I met his dad once in that time, which was shortly after his run for president in the 1980's.
