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.

You decide who is right....

Jesus' words....

Jesus saith unto him "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father , but by me. (John 14:6)

Katherine Schori, Presiding Bishop's words

Jefferts Schori replied that like most Christians, she believes Jesus died for "the whole world." But his life and resurrection did not sever the promise God made to Jews and to Muslims, she added, and those groups still have access to salvation. "I see evidence of holiness in people who are not Christians. I have to assume in some way God is present and important in those people who may not consciously know Jesus. And it's really God's problem to figure out how to deal with that," she said, to surprised laughter and applause. "My problem is to be the best Christian I can be and to share what I know of the power of Jesus in my own life." (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette 3 Nov 08)


My faith is with Jesus! I'll take Him at His Word(s)

You decide who is right - Jesus or Ms. Schori.....
