Anglican Church still divided over new bishop

From Barbados-

After two sittings separated by 19 days and 16 hours of voting, the Anglican Church here is no closer to electing a bishop to lead the Barbadian flock.

The House of Clergy and the House of Laity aborted yet another attempt today, having failed to reach consensus after six hours of voting.

They ended today in the same position as they did on April 25 after ten hours of voting and four ballots at the Ivan Harewood Centre of the Christ Church Parish Church to choose a successor to the retired John Holder.

As it did back then, the laity continued to throw its support behind youthful candidate Rev John Rogers, 45, rector of St George Parish Church, while the clergy backed his senior, Dr Jeffrey Gibson, 61, dean of The Cathedral of St Michael’s and All Angels.
