This one comes from a different mystery correspondent:
As Stake President you know that Bishop Dubloseven of the Yuppie 2nd Ward has been in the process of applying to the FBI for the last three years. Just yesterday he informed you that he was offered and accepted the position and training begins in two weeks. There is, of course, no problem with a bishop being in the FBI, rather it is the training that raises conflict.
Headquartered in Quantico, Virginia, the FBI’s new recruits can’t leave the training facility in the first five weeks. Following that is four months of weekend-only leave (the good bishop’s commute home will be a five-hour drive). After training he plans to return and work in the Bureau’s office of his home city.
Bishop Dubloseven has been in the calling for three years and while he’s never felt comfortable, he feels like a 22-month-out missionary who is now just beginning to “get it.” He is fiercely faithful and will humbly do whatever is asked of him (as will his faithful wife who stays at home with their two small children).
As Stake President you can either release him and call a new bishop or not make any changes. Assuming the Lord has answered your petition with the response, “It’s up to you,” what would you do?
