Note: There's some religious terminology about to be used here. Anything you don't know can be explained here.
From the pulpit today at Stake Conference (meeting of six or so congregations of church members in a local area.):
"Bro.----couldn't be here today - (where we were sustaining him as Stake Patriarch) - because he's been working for a long time to get enough tags to go bow hunting and today was the day. So we excuse him and we appreciate the work he does."
This is me and that's one I could not have predicted.
