RIP: The Very Rev. John Everitt Booty

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.

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.

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…..

RSF unveils “shadow report” on press freedom in Eritrea

first_img EritreaAfrica Condemning abusesReports and statisticsProtecting journalistsInternational bodies PredatorsImprisonedFreedom of expressionUNESCO RSF_en Reports Follow the news on Eritrea Organisation Prisoner of Conscience Since 2001 – Why has Sweden not managed to bring Dawit Isaak home? RSF at the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights in Banjul (Gambia) on 7 April 2016 Reporters Without Borders (RSF) accuses the Eritrean government of a complete denial of reality in its first-ever report to the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights and announces that it has submitted an alternative “shadow report” with a much darker assessment of the state of press freedom in Eritrea. April 14, 2021 Find out more The government’s “initial national report” covering the period from 1999 to 2016 has to be seen to be believed. It says: “The fundamental principle in the National Charter, Eritrea’s Constitution of 1997 and the national codes and proclamations is that citizens have the right for lawful expression and opinion without interference.”The Eritrean government will present this report to the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights on 28 and 30 April during the Commission’s 62nd ordinary session in the Mauritanian capital of Nouakchott.RSF’s shadow report, which was written by its Swedish section and was sent to the Commission, emphasizes the gulf between the situation described by the Eritrean authorities and the reality on the ground.“While the Eritrean government’s report is a first, it nonetheless constitutes a complete denial of reality,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “Freedom of expression and information is non-existent in Issayas Afeworki’s dictatorship, which is still Sub-Saharan Africa’s biggest jailer of journalists. Seventeen years after Eritrea shut down all independent media outlets, it is time to free the many journalists who are detained arbitrarily.”Is Dawit Isaak still alive? Isaak is a Swedish-Eritrean journalist who co-founded the newspaper Setit and was awarded UNESCO’s Guillermo Cano World Press Freedom Prize in 2017. Like many other Eritrean journalists, he has been detained for the past 17 years without ever being brought before a court, charged or tried. He has had no access to lawyer and his family has had no news of him since 2005. He was arrested on 18 September 2001 along with ten other politicians and journalists who were openly questioning the regime’s increasingly authoritarian tendencies. When asked by Radio France Internationale about “political prisoners” in an interview in 2016, Eritrea’s foreign minister said “all of them are alive” and that they would be tried “when the government decides.”Eritrea continues to be ranked second from last, 179th out of 180 countries, in RSF’s latest World Press Freedom Index. A handful of foreign reporters were allowed access to the capital, Asmara, under close escort on 2016 but only Radio Erena, a Paris-based radio station run by four Eritrean exile journalists, is able to provide independently reported news and information about Eritrea.Read our shadow report about press freedom in Eritrea here Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Related documents shadow_report_eritrea_reporters_without_borders_2018.pdfPDF – 78.31 KB Reports News October 27, 2020 Find out more to go further January 13, 2021 Find out more RSF urges Swedish judicial authorities to reverse Dawit Isaak decision April 27, 2018 – Updated on July 12, 2018 RSF unveils “shadow report” on press freedom in Eritrea EritreaAfrica Condemning abusesReports and statisticsProtecting journalistsInternational bodies PredatorsImprisonedFreedom of expressionUNESCO News Swedish prosecutors again refuse to investigate Dawit Isaak caselast_img read more

New proposal to support Limerick jobseekers with real jobs

first_imgSinn Féin believes that quality work experience programmes can provide a useful means of enhancing skills and providing a valuable first step into the world of work. They also claim that the current system displaces paid work, depresses wages and facilitates abuse by some employers.Cllr Quinlivan explained that as part of his party’s proposed scheme tailored internships would be developed sector by sector in full co-operation with trade unions and Education and Training Boards. Employers, he said, would be supported to be the best mentors that they can be. Facebook Twitter “We propose an internship scheme that supports jobseekers to attain real quality jobs without limiting the number of proper job vacancies available. Sinn Féin’s proposals maximise decent pay for decent work,” he said. Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Print NewsLocal NewsNew proposal to support Limerick jobseekers with real jobsBy Alan Jacques – February 26, 2015 662 Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live TAGSCllr Maurice QuinlivanJobBridgelimerickLimerick jobsSinn Fein center_img WhatsApp by Alan [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Cllr Maurice QuinlivanLIMERICK Sinn Féin councillor Maurice Quinlivan believes his party’s newly launched proposals on internships provide a credible, workable and thoroughly necessary alternative to the “despised” JobBridge scheme.Following the launch of Sinn Féin’s ‘Displacing JobBridge’ strategy for an alternative internship scheme this week, Cllr Quinlivan said that the JobBridge scheme launched by the Fine Gael and Labour Party Government in June 2011, was “an absolute disaster.”“While some individuals may have had a positive experience, it is a scheme that leaves thousands of jobseekers vulnerable to exploitation. It has already reduced the number of real job opportunities available and if it is not closed down now, thousands of new entry level positions that should come into being in the months and years ahead will emerge as unpaid internships instead,” he said.According to the City North councillor, Sinn Féin propose to replace the “one-size-fits-all” JobBridge scheme with a new participant centred model for internships. He also said that he envisages a substantial increase in the range of apprenticeships available.“The model we propose would not displace apprenticeships, paid in-work training or jobs. It would afford those genuinely in need of some work experience with meaningful learning opportunities.” Advertisement Previous articleMunster face Glasgow as Limerick sides meet in #UBLNext articleRattling good tales from The Boneyard bodies Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin Vanishing Ireland podcast documenting interviews with people over 70’s, looking for volunteers to share their stories WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Emaillast_img read more

A division Bench of Justice Ashok Bhushan and Justice Subhash Reddy has directed that elderly people are to be given priority in admissions at private hospitals besides at government medical institutions amid the COVID-19 pandemic, in modification to its previous order that was applicable only to government hospitals. The direction was issued in response to Dr. Ashwani Kumar’s suggestion that priority in admission priority in admission to the elderly people should be given in all private hospitals as well since it is mostly private hospitals which cater most of the population in the country. The Court has also directed the States to respond in three weeks to the petitioner’s suggestions regarding issuance of necessary MoP incorporating directions issued by the Court The Apex Court has also stated that all the directions issued by it in its judgement dated 13th December 2018 need to be complied with by all states Former Law Minister Dr Ashwani Kumar appearing as petitioner in person informed the Court that State Governments have not yet filed their response in pursuance to the order passed by the top Court on September 7th, 2020, and except Punjab and Odisha, no other State has given details of the steps taken by them. The Court therefore directed the States to respond in three week’s time. The Court through its order on 7th September 2020 had directed all the States to file their affidavit in four weeks’ time. The Court was informed that by the petitioner in person, that the replies which were filed by the States did not contain the details with regard to the steps taken by the States to monitor the situation. The Court had therefore directed all the States, including the States who had already filed their affidavits, to file their affidavits bringing on record the material and the steps taken by them. The Apex Court on 4th August 2020 had issued directions after hearing an application filed by the petitioner in person seeking directions in terms of older people who need more care and protection in this pandemic of Covid 19. Dr Ashwani Kumar had sought appropriate directions for timely payment of old age pension to all elder persons who are in receipt of the pension. The petitioner in person had then submitted before the Court that the older people, who are living alone, are worst sufferers and they are not able to get medicines, masks, sanitisers and other essential goods. The care givers of these people are also not equipped with personal protection equipment and are also untrained. The Court had directed that all old age people eligible for pension should be regularly paid pension and those identified older people should be provided necessary medicines, masks, sanitisers and other essential goods by respective States. In case of an individual request being made, the same should be attended to by the Administration with all promptness. The Court had further directed the care givers of those old age homes to be provided personal protection and appropriate sanitisation should be undertaken in the old age homes. All the States were asked to file their reply affidavit to the averments made in the application by the petitioner in person within four weeks. In terms of grievance raised by Dr Ashwani Kumar regarding elderly people not getting priority in the Government hospital irrespective of their capacity to pay, the Court had directed that old people be given priority in the admission in the Government hospital looking to their vulnerability for Covid 19. The Court through its judgement on 13th December 2018 in a plea moved by Dr Ashwani Kumar had directed the Union to obtain necessary information from all the State Governments and the Union Territories about the number of old age homes in each district of the country and file a Status Report. The Central government was directed to obtain from all the State Governments the medical facilities and geriatric care facilities available to senior citizens in each district. The Court had further directed that a plan of action be prepared on the basis of the information gathered by the Union of India, for giving publicity to the provisions of the MWP Act and making senior citizens aware of the provisions of the Act and the constitutional and statutory rights of senior citizens. The Court had observed that it was high time that the Government of India had a relook at these schemes and perhaps overhaul them with a view to bring about convergence and avoid multiplicity. The Central and the State Governments were asked to revisit the grant of pension to the elderly so that it is more realistic depending on the availability of finances and the economic capacity of the Centre and the State Governments.Click Hear To Download/Read OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
