Bishop Damien Mead had a bad accident – Bishop’s Accident 1st June 2013. A heavy display cabinet in the ACC church shop in Canterbury fell onto his foot causing a lot of damage, enough to cause great pain, the need for surgery and his being handicapped for several months.
Human feet are sensitive things. When I was received into the ACC last April, I had something like tendinitis or strained ligaments in my left foot and I had difficulty walking for a few days. Problems and injuries with feet are excruciating, and we only appreciate them when we get better from some problem. My problem got better in a few days. This injury suffered by our Bishop will take much longer to heal. There is no comparison, but I feel for him!
Please pray for him as he soldiers on with his ministry and the ongoing installations in the new church shop.
