Suspension comes after one St. Agnes Vestry member who was removed by Parish Rector was not reinstated as ordered by Bishop…
Bishop set to discipline lawless church leaders…
Nassau, Bahamas – St. Agnes Anglican Church could have a new rector and vestry appointed before Pentecost, if Anglican Bishop Laish Boyd puts his foot down in the parish after serious concerns erupted once again.
Breaking News coming out of Addington House at this hour confirms Bishop of the Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Island, The Rt. Rev. Laish Zane Boyd has lifted his CROZIER and has suspended a member of his Cabinet.
The breaking details stems from an incident more than one week ago when Rector of St. Agnes Anglican Church, Archdeacon I. Ranfurly Brown defied an order by the Prince of the Church and walked out of a meeting with The Bishop, the Chancellor and the vestry at St. Agnes.
Now get this, Archdeacon Brown, who made a clear decision to remove vestry member, Henry Dean, from the parish board is not complying with a ruling of the Bishop to have Dean reinstated. That decision forced the meeting with the top cleric to have Dean returned, however, it was met with opposition by Archdeacon Brown.
Dean and crew from the “GUARD ROOM” in the historic Grants Town Church petitioned the Bishop to intervene on the decision of the rector, who is now in a ball of confusion within his Church.
Bahamas Press supports the decision of Archdeacon Brown, who we know is also protecting the purse of St. Agnes from a known group of thieves and rogues, who it is believed, landed a former pastor of that same parish church deep in his grave.
However, Archdeacon Brown must be careful to note that no one would agree with any kind of disrespect to the senior cleric, who is charged with all powers of his Synod to command and instruct the direction of the Church in the Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands.
Some tell us recommendations have come to have Archdeacon Brown stripped as a member of the “Gold coloured” Cathedral Chapter.
Others believe a decision should be made to have St. Agnes Church to be assigned a new pastor immediately, whatever decision is made, we advise the Bishop to quickly – without delay – appoint someone with the grasp to watch the purse in that church before a Houdini move on the bank accounts comes once again.
For we all know that when the cat is sent away, the rats will play.
BP calls on all members of the Parish of St. Agnes and all right-thinking Anglicans around the country to pray for the unity of the Church – and that the matter is amicably and speedily resolved.
For those who know the virtue of prayer – Pray for all involved.
