Bishop Randall Davidson

Randall Davidson was born in Edinburgh in 1848, the eldest son of Henry Davidson, a merchant of Leith. Educated at Harrow (1862) and Trinity College Oxford (1867), he was ordained deacon in 1874 and priested the following year. He served at Dartford from 1874-77 where became chaplain to Archibald Tait, Archbishop of Canterbury (his father-in-law) and to Queen Victoria.

He went on to become Dean of Windsor (1883), Bishop of Rochester (1891) and Bishop of Winchester (1895) before being translated to the see of Canterbury (1903-1928). It was during his time as Bishop of Rochester that he consecrated All Saints’ in 1892

He was Primate during a most difficult period, but promoted a strong Christian witness in national life, and maintained the comprehensiveness of the Church of England, and especially freedom for scholarship and inquiry. It was written of him:- “His capacities were essentially those of a chairman, and a chairman of extraordinary fairness. He was a most able administrator, while at the same time a man of great simplicity of character, and this won him the friendship and trust of men of widely different points of view


After their teacher fires a gun at school, Georgia students use opportunity to challenge Trump’s proposal

Jesse Randall Davidson wasn’t a stranger, some mysterious threat from the outside. He was a bearded, bespectacled, 53-year-old social studies teacher and the play-by-play announcer for the football games at Dalton High School in northwest Georgia.

But when the teacher brought a gun to school, barricaded himself in his classroom Wednesday and fired a single shot, students quickly recognized that this wasn’t just a sad local incident.

Amid national outrage over school shootings — and suggestions by President Trump that schools would be safer if some teachers packed guns — it was a political event.

“my favorite teacher at Dalton high school just blockaded his door and proceeded to shoot,” a 16-year-old student named Chondi Chastain tweeted at the National Rifle Assn., earning more than 17,000 retweets. “We had to run out The back of the school in the rain. Students were being trampled and screaming. I dare you to tell me arming teachers will make us safe.”

The political winds around gun control have changed — in large part because U.S. high school students are learning from one another how to influence national policy debates.

It started with the Feb. 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. Since then, students around the country have been watching their Parkland peers use their personal experiences — and social media — to directly challenge Republican lawmakers and the NRA over gun control.

So when crisis struck 650 miles away at Dalton High School, the online tactics of the Georgia students looked remarkably familiar — even though the shootings bore no resemblance to each other.

It wasn’t immediately clear what had driven the teacher kids called “Mr. Davidson” to act violently.

When students came to his door at room 413 during third period — a time his classroom is normally empty — it was locked, and Davidson wouldn’t let them in, police said later.

“My brother, who was one door down from the teacher, said he was yelling at his students to ‘get the [expletive] out of here,’ ” junior Henry Hansen, 17, wrote in a private message on Twitter.

The principal, Steve Bartoo, tried to unlock the door with a key, but Davidson “slammed the door before I could open it and said, ‘Don’t come in here, I have a gun,’ ” Bartoo said at a televised news conference.

Bartoo put the school into lockdown mode, and soon after, Davidson “apparently fired a shot from a handgun through an exterior window of the classroom,” Dalton police spokesman Bruce Frazier said at a separate news conference. “It did not appear that it was aimed at anybody.”

Fear quickly took over, and once again students at an American school wondered whether they were about to get murdered while trying to get their education.

“A bunch of kids started screaming and running into our cafeteria and to the back door,” Chondi wrote in a private message on Twitter. “I was really scared and left my stuff. I tripped over a chair on my way out and thought I would be trampled, but someone helped me up.”

Another student hurt her ankle while running away. Outside the school, Junior ROTC members directed frightened students to another nearby school, Chondi said.

Dalton police, the Whitfield County Sheriff’s Office, the Georgia State Patrol and federal law enforcement agencies all responded to the emergency. “More or less everybody with a badge in the area came running,” Frazier said.

After about half an hour, Davidson surrendered and was taken into custody to face charges of aggravated assault, carrying a weapon on school grounds, terroristic threats, reckless conduct, possession of a gun during commission of a crime and disrupting public school, police said.

The incident showed the extent to which the Parkland students have influenced their peers across the U.S. and created a model for other students to follow.

The Dalton students immediately turned to social media to take issue with Trump’s calls to arm teachers.

“I’m a Dalton High School student,” tweeted one student, earning more than 4,000 retweets. “Please don’t tell me a damn thing about arming teachers. Please don’t tell me that I don’t know what the hell I’m talking about.”

“So are we still going to give teachers guns?” tweeted another. “I’m on the bus evacuating Dalton high school.”

Some of the Dalton students’ messages were retweeted by the Parkland students, who have amassed large followings on social media.

“To all Dalton High School students: I am so sorry,” tweeted one Parkland student. “We are together in this. Your school is a living example of why teachers shouldn’t be armed. If anyone needs someone to talk to, please dm [private message] me. I’m here for you.”

The Florida shooting, which left 17 students and faculty members dead, had been a hot subject of conversation at the Dalton school before the incident, students said.

“I have been raised in a more conservative household, but due to the recent shootings and everything that has been happening I have been more and more for gun control,” said Henry, the 17-year-old junior. “After today, I believe that as a nation we need to better secure our schools and keep the kids safe. If that means to increase gun laws, then so be it.”

“no need to arm teachers with guns,” junior Wesley Caceres, 16, wrote in a private message on Twitter after posting video of students fleeing the school. “it’s time for trump to do his job.”

Police said it was not clear when Davidson, who has taught at the school since 2004, brought the gun to school. Teachers are “not supposed to have guns” at the school, school district spokeswoman Haley Charlton said, adding that the school also has a school resource officer on campus.

Davidson, who served as a sports and news director at WBLJ-AM radio before becoming a teacher, did not appear to have a criminal history, and his Facebook feed is mostly filled with lighthearted posts.

The school honored him as a “STAR teacher” in 2012 and published a blog post about how Davidson had found a “happy medium” as a teacher and sports broadcaster at the district.

Chondi, who tweeted at the NRA, used Davidson as an example for why she thought arming teachers was a bad idea.

“Sure, they can go through background checks and make sure they’re mentally stable, but things can happen,” she said. “You never know what can cause someone to break. Mr. Davidson seemed completely fine. He was nice and funny and a great teacher. He hadn’t committed a crime. You never know what’s going on inside a person’s head.”

Püspök

Rochester

1890-re egyértelművé vált, hogy annak ellenére, hogy a királynő vonakodott elveszíteni őt Windsorból, Davidson püspökséggé léptette elő. Felajánlotta, hogy két megüresedett egyházmegye közül választhat: Worcester és Rochester . Abban az időben - létrehozása előtt az egyházmegye Southwark - Rochester tartalmazza az összes londoni délre a Temze volt, és a harmadik legnagyobb Angliában. Davidson Worcester helyett választotta, és elmagyarázta Lord Salisbury miniszterelnöknek, hogy Lambeth-ben töltött évei óta olyan jól ismeri a környéket és annak papságát, hogy biztos abban, hogy ott többet tehet, mint Worcesterben, amit alig ismert.

A Westminster-apátságban 1891. április 25-én Benson püspökké szentelte Davidsont. Tizenegy nappal később Davidson vészesen megbetegedett egy perforált fekély miatt , és hat hónapig Kenningtoni házába zárták . A rochesteri székesegyházban való trónra lépést októberre kellett halasztani, amikor folytathatta munkáját. Az 1893-as bányászsztrájk során kiemelkedő jelentőségű volt a tisztességes életszínvonal, mint a munkaügyi viták rendezésének alapvető feltétele. Politikája nem volt radikális nem csatlakozott az 1889-ben Westcott és mások által létrehozott Keresztény Szociális Unióhoz , hogy a kereszténység tételeit a nemzetgazdasági és társadalmi ügyekbe vezesse. Az egyház szerepére összpontosított: szerinte a keresztény szeretet minden tőle telhetőt megkövetelt a szegények megkönnyebbülésében. Elvetette azt az elképzelést, miszerint "a társadalmi élet bármely részlegén . akár egy órán keresztül is nyugodtan félretehetjük annak megfontolását, hogy Krisztus mit akar nekünk". Szentelése után azonnal kinevezték a szekrény jegyzőjévé, szoros kapcsolatban állt Viktória királynővel. Továbbra is Benson közeli és hű szövetségese volt az egyház munkájában, különösen 1894–95 között, amikor Halifax és más magas egyházi emberek megpróbálták az érseket Rómával folytatott tárgyalásokra vonni , hogy az anglikán rendek pápai elismerését kérjék .

1895-ben, az egyházmegyében töltött idő vége felé, Davidson püspöki rangja feljogosította őt a Lordok Házába . Élvezte a vitákhoz való hozzájárulás képességét, de a dél-londoni négy év alatt még három betegségbetegséget szenvedett el, és nyilvánvalóvá vált, hogy egészségi állapota túl gyenge ahhoz, hogy folytathassa a kivételesen igényes rochesteri püspök posztot.

Winchester

1895-ben Davidson elfogadta a fordítási ajánlatot a nagyrészt vidéki Winchesteri egyházmegyébe , ahol a munkaterhelés kevésbé volt megterhelő. Ő megújította rendszeres kapcsolatban áll a királynő, aki sok időt töltött az egyházmegyében, a Osborne House a Isle of Wight . Benson érsek a következő évben meghalt, őt Frederick Temple londoni püspök követte . A királynő megvétózta a megüresedett londoni püspökség javasolt ajánlatát Davidsonnak, azzal az indokkal, hogy egészsége nem állja meg. Temple, két elődjével ellentétben, nem Davidsonhoz fordult tanácsért híres volt arról, hogy elszigetelte magát minden püspökötől és nézeteiktől. Davidson nagyon sajnálta, hogy hirtelen kizárta az egyház nemzeti ügyeiből.

Belül ő egyházmegyéje Davidson állították be vita egy nagy templom megsértése kánonjog szerint Robert Dolling , buzgó angol-katolikus pap, aki szerette az úgynevezett „Apa Dolling”. Davidson rájött, hogy Dolling újonnan épült templomában egy harmadik oltárt is felállított , amelyet a halottak tömegei számára tartottak fenn . Az angliai egyház elutasította a tisztítóhely római katolikus hitét és a benne lévő lelkekért való imádság hatékonyságát. Davidson látta Dollingot, és megpróbált olyan kompromisszumra jutni, amely utóbbi gyakorlatát az anglikán szabályok körébe vonja. Dolling nem volt hajlandó kompromisszumot kötni és lemondott, elhagyva az egyházmegyét. Támogatói kritikusan viszonyultak Davidsonhoz Mews idéz egy magas egyházi újságírót, aki arra a következtetésre jutott, hogy az epizód rányomta bélyegét Davidsonra "abban az elhatározásában, hogy elhatározza, hogy nem az az érsek lesz, aki kiszorította a magas egyházi pártot az angliai egyházból". Noha hagyományosan protestánsként elutasította a római katolikus tan egyes szempontjait, mint például a Benedictust , úgy gondolta, hogy evangélikus kollégáit túlságosan könnyen felidegesítik a " tömjén , a copes és egyéb díszek", amelyeknek nincs doktrinális jelentőségük.

Davidson a haldokló Viktória királynő ágyánál volt, és nagy szerepet játszott a temetésének 1901 elején történő lebonyolításában. Amikor a londoni szék 1901 februárjában, Mandell Creighton halálakor ismét megüresedett , Davidsonnak ajánlották fel. , aki határozott orvosi tanácsra visszautasította. Gyakran beszélt a Lordok Házában, különösen olyan témákban, mint az oktatás, a gyermekvédelem, az alkoholengedélyezés és az üzletek munkaideje. Amikor csak tehette, bekapcsolódott a nemzeti egyházpolitikába. A kérdések felfogása lenyűgözte Arthur Balfour miniszterelnököt, aki megjegyezte, hogy "a püspöknek az a művészete, hogy nagy világossággal és együttérzéssel állítsa a vélemények lényegét, amelyektől eltér", és azt mondta, hogy megértette Halifax és az Anglo álláspontját. -A katolikus előcsarnok jobb, miután megbeszéltük Davidsonnal.

Balfour továbbra is Davidson tanácsát kérte. A kormány igyekezett megreformálni az alapfokú oktatást, és Davidson hozzájárulását az 1902-es oktatási törvény kidolgozásához Balfour nagyra értékelte, ahogyan azt a tanácsát is, hogy John Clifford baptista miniszter vezette a törvényjavaslatot a hangos nonkonformista ellenzékkel szemben . A színfalak mögött Davidson kulcsszerepet játszott Edward VII koronázásában 1902 augusztusában a Westminsteri dékán beteg volt, és Davidsont felszólították, hogy gondoskodjon a szolgálat rendjéről, és lépjen kapcsolatba a Buckingham-palota és a Lambeth-palota között. Négy hónappal a király megkoronázása után Temple érsek meghalt, Balfour pedig Davidsont jelölte utódjának.


Randall Davidson

Randall Thomas Davidson, 1:e baron Davidson of Lambeth, född 7 maj 1848 i Edinburgh, död 25 april 1930 i London, var en brittisk kyrkoman.

Davidson blev biskop av Rochester 1891, biskop av Winchester 1895 och var ärkebiskop av Canterbury 1903-1928. Davidson var inte någon utpräglad partiman utan behandlade de ytterligtgående kyrkliga riktningarna anglokatolikerna och de moderna teologerna med största möjliga förståelse och moderation. Han vann också förtroende hos alla grupper inom kyrkan. Ett led i hans strävan att bevara den Engelska kyrkans traditionella vidsynthet (comprehension) var hans arbete för revision av Book of Common Prayer. Utåt kännetecknades hans primat av vidgad gemenskap med andra trossamfund såsom, däribland den ortodoxa kyrkan och svenska kyrkan. Då Davidson lämnade sitt ämbete 1928, blev han pär under namnet Lord Davidson of Lamberth.

A walk through the cemetery is truly a walk through Nashville's history. The gravestones tell the stories of individuals and families from the 1820s to the present day.

In response to the disrepair, vandalism, and neglect over many decades, former Mayor Bill Purcell and the Metro Council approved the Mayor's Capital Budget request for a $3M project to restore the City Cemetery. The Restoration, including conserved tombstones and monuments as well as new street signs, lighting, paved walkways & roadways and interpretive signage will be completed in the fall of 2009. Many exciting and noticeable improvements are in progress. You can join the Nashville City Cemetery Association in continuing to help to preserve this fragile historic site by becoming a member, attending our tours and events, volunteering, and/or making donations. We are always interested in hearing from descendants of those buried there.
