State of the Church

By  | 

A new report is due out Monday, one year after the Episcopal church's first-time ordination of an openly gay bishop.

The report is expected to address the rifts caused by the ordination of Bishop Gene Robinson to the New Hampshire Diocese.

The Diocese of Colorado Springs says that decision caused some parishioners to leave the church and prompted some members to withhold their offerings to the national church.

The report could influence the decision of whether there will be a split in the denomination.
