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.

Getting caught up in the pop culture

Today, instead of taking some time out for lunch, I drove over the the Motown Museum and yes, I shook hands with Barry Gordy Jr., (founder of Motown Records), Smokey Robinson, and the contestants from the TV show American Idol who were in town shooting a segment for next week's show.

I shook hands with all as they left the building and went towards their cars. (I am in the top picture, in the background, on the far right.)

Not all the contestants were there. Megan Joy and Michael Sarver were no where to be seen.

Now back to our regularly scheduled Lenten Observance....
