Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 52 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 nice weekend

Friday (the day off) I went with the boys to rowing. They are really coming along! It was great to see, and also to spend time with another dad there - Todd Platt, who was married at St. John's and a frequent visitor. His daughter is in the rowing class. Todd rowed for the Detroit Boat Club in the late 70's/early 80's. Great hearing about the DBC in those days, and getting to know Todd.
Video of the boys rowing can be found here

Then on Friday and Saturday afternoon we had an air show over our house. For the Gold Cup races on the Detroit River there was a fighter jet demo Friday and Saturday with a jet flying a few hundred feet over out house.
Video can also be seen of that at the above address.

But overall, it was a great time being with family, paying hardly any attention to what is going on at General Convention, and getting ready for the St. Michael's Conference this upcoming week.
