Third try to elect bishop

From Barbados-

THE ELECTIVE SYNOD of the Anglican Church meets today in the third attempt to select a bishop.

The meeting, scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the Christ Church Parish Centre, will again bring together laity and clergy to vote for the person who will lead the denomination that boasts the largest religious numbers in Barbados.
Many are hoping that the stalemate from the two previous meetings will be broken today when the process of nominating candidates is repeated.
At the previous meetings of the synod, members of the House of Laity stood firm in their support for 45-year-old John Rogers, the younger of the two candidates nominated, while the priests who make up the House of Clergy, have twice cast their majority vote for Dean of St Michael’s Cathedral, 61-year-old Dr Jeffrey Gibson.
