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.

Big day today for Sam and Andrew!!!

Later today, Friday, Sam and Andrew have their formal Black Belt test. This is after their 5 hour tests a few weeks ago.

Instructor Santi believes they are ready (she wouldn't let them test otherwise), but there will be black belt instructors from other clubs to prove themselves to!

Sam tests at 4:30pm. Andrew tests about 5:10 or so. Sam is first, Andrew third (of 6 testing).

Then at 7pm is the Club demonstration night, where they will be awarded their black belts (D.v.).

This is the culmination of 4.5 years of work by the boys.
Sam is 12, Andrew 11. Andrew will be one of the youngest ever to make it in this club, along with the Instructor's daughter a few years ago, and another boy last year.

William is about a year away from his black belt. He will be 9 if he does!

If you would like to come, it is at Windmill Pointe Park in Grosse Pointe Park.
