Although I was a “delayed vocation” student and a commuter, and thus not a part of the EDS community in the way that resident students were, John was as pastoral toward and supportive of me as he was of all his other students. I count it a great blessing to have known John and to have benefited from the other-directedness and compassion of this learned and wise, but also kind and deeply spiritual servant of God..

Photo/Courtesy Duane Dale[Episcopal News Service] Scholar, teacher, poet, priest, beloved husband, father, and grandad, the Very Rev. John Booty died at age 87 April 17 at his home in Center Sandwich, New Hampshire. He goes joyfully to join his son Peter who died in 2010, and he leaves behind as witness to his love his wife of 62 years, Kitty Lou, his daughter Carol and her husband Ernie, his son Geoffrey and his wife Helen, Peter’s wife Diane, his daughter Jane and her husband Todd, nine grandchildren and four great grandchildren, all of whom gave him much happiness.John was born in Detroit, Michigan, on May 2, 1925,  earned a Bachelor of Divinity degree from Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria, Virginia, and began his life of service to the Episcopal Church as a curate at Christ Church, Dearborn, Michigan. After earning a Ph.D. from Princeton University, John joined the faculty at Virginia Seminary as Professor of Church History, taught at the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and served as Dean of the Seminary at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. A life-long scholar, John was a Fellow of the Folger Shakespeare Library and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and he served as Historiographer of the Episcopal Church. He was awarded Honorary Doctor of Divinity degrees from Virginia Seminary and the University of the South. Also a gifted writer, John had numerous books published, including “The Church in History, Reflections on the Theology of Richard Hooker,” “John Jewel as Apologist of the Church of England, Meditating on Four Quartets,” and “The Christ We Know.” Secular scholars as well as ecclesiastics respected him, and all who were blessed to know him celebrated him.John Booty was a man of warmth and humor who loved reading, gardening, and tea on the porch. He struggled at times in life and shared himself freely through his writing and preaching as he brought countless disciples to the Gospel. His last days were populated by loving family, devoted “care angels,” lively memories of his past, and his abiding faith in life everlasting. We are grateful for his life with us, and we rejoice that he has gone to God.A celebration of John’s life will be held this summer at St. Andrew’s-in-the-Valley Episcopal Church, Tamworth, New Hampshire.

We were so blessed to spend time with him and his family at ETS. May he rest in peace…thanks be to God. July 10, 2013 at 10:01 am John Booty was my senior project / thesis advisor at Episcopal Divinity School in 1976-1977. What a special man in so many ways – intellectuallly, pastorally, liturgically – and most of all a deep soul with a warm and engaging spirit. God bless his family and many friends as we celebrate his life. People Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 April 25, 2013 at 11:30 pm Much saddened to hear of John’s death. In the early 1960s at Virginia Seminary we were inspired by John Booty, Charles Price, John Woolverton, Murray Newman, all young men getting started in their careers. These were balanced by senior professors Mollegen and Stanley. These were stimulating times, even for one who thought he knew it all already. I was wrong. I didn’t. The roster for a heavenly faculty is almost complete. June 30, 2013 at 11:19 am The Church has lost a great man! Dr. Booty was a wonderful inspiration to me and so many other seminarians while we were studying for the priesthood at Sewanee. He will be greatly missed! May he rest in peace and may light perpetual shine upon him. May God comfort all who mourn and give them the blessed assurance of everlasting life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Good-bye John+. You will be greatly missed. I hope to see you again in the Kingdom to come. Rector Hopkinsville, KY Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector Bath, NC The Rev.

John Booty in this month’s issue of NH Episcopal News. I wondered how common a name Booty could be. So I just had to look up the obituary of Rev. Booty remembering that the father of one of my favorite “bosses” was an Episcopal Minster. There I found that Geoff Booty was indeed the son of the Rev. Booty….. I remember fondly the great leader that Geoff was. If you see this Geoff, I wish you and your family all well!

I’m also remembering fondly a visit to John and Kitty Lou sometime in the 1980s at their lovely home in Center Sandwich. My prayers are of thanksgiving and for comfort for Kitty Lou and John’s family in the assurance that John is in the loving arms of God.

Phil Lesh & Friends Recreate Classic Dead Show From 1987 At Terrapin Crossroads [Full Video]

first_imgPhil Lesh and his ever-evolving cast of bandmates took the stage inside the Grate Room at his Terrapin Crossroads venue last night to recreate one of the Grateful Dead‘s classic shows. The performance on Wednesday at Lesh’s family-friendly venue was a full-set recreation of his former band’s 1987 concert originally held at Long Beach Arena in Long Beach, California on the same date, November 14th.Wednesday’s concert was the first of three “On This Day In Dead History” shows that Lesh has planned for this week, with the next two scheduled for Friday, November 16th, and Sunday, November 18th. Lesh was joined on Wednesday by Anders Osborne and Stu Allen on guitar, Steve Molitz on keys, and Nathan Graham holding down the rhythm section. Thankfully, by the power of Nugs.net, the entire show was streamed live from the San Rafael venue for Deadheads around the country to turn on, tune in and enjoy.Phil Lesh & Friends – Terrapin Crossroads – 11/14/18[Video: Nugs.net]The show begins right at the video’s 10:41 mark with that infamous, bold D-minor chord of “Shakedown Street” powering its way through the speakers. The lengthy opening jam provided the lineup with an immediate opportunity to stretch their group-mind abilities and take the title track from their 1978 Shakedown Street LP for a walk through the woods, just as the Dead used to do it. The first set continued after some solid jamming with “Little Red Rooster”, “Althea” and a cover of Bob Dylan‘s “When I Paint My Masterpiece”. The set would come to a close with the band playing through a fun version of The Meters‘ “Hey Pocky A-Way” followed by the always lively “Deal”, with Stu Allen leading the way on vocals for the dance-friendly song. To make for an even better free show stream experience, fans were encouraged to stick around at setbreak to tune into a performance from Colonel & The Mermaids.Set two started out hot with the galloping rhythm of “Maggie’s Farm” before the band quickly transitioned into “Cumberland Blues”. The second set was then off and running with an extended “Playing In The Band” > “Terrapin Station” segment, the latter featuring Phil trading off vocal duties with Allen. “Drums” > “Space” followed, as was customary by the Dead’s nightly setlists at that point in their career. The band continued with a stretch of Dead favorites (“I Need A Miracle” > “Stella Blues” > “Throwing Stones”) before ending with Bobby “Blue” Bland classic “Turn On Your Love Light”, best known to Deadheads as a quintessential Ron “Pigpen” McKernan live tune. Phil and company returned to the stage (following his organ donor rap) to close out the night with their cover of Bob Dylan’s “Quinn the Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn)”.Below, fans can also tune into the original audio from the Dead’s 1987 Long Beach performance below to hear to how well Phil and his new band did at revisiting the old show.Grateful Dead – 11/14/87 – Full Audio[Audio: Uploaded by Johnathan Aizen]Fans hoping to attend the next “On This Day In Dead History” show on Friday can click here for tickets. Although Phil Lesh has yet to announce which historical show his band will be revisiting, we do know that it was a show played on November 16th.
