PASTOR HAS EYE MISHAP
Pastor Rick Warren was briefly hospitalized because of an eye injury he suffered while gardening at home.
Warren spokesman Larry Ross said the sap of a firestick plant got into Warren’s eyes when he wiped his brow while gardening. The sap can cause temporary blindness, although Ross said Warren can see.
The 56-year-old sent a message to his Twitter followers Thursday asking for their prayers. “My eyes were severely burned,” Warren wrote. “Excruciating pain.”
He is the author of the multimillion-selling book “Purpose Driven Life.”
