The Three Envelopes

A new bishop spends an hour in his new office with the bishop he is replacing. The departing bishop tells him, "I have left three numbered envelopes in the desk drawer. Open an envelope if you encounter a crisis you can't solve."

Three months down the track there is a major drama in the ward, everything goes wrong - the usual stuff - and the bishop feels very threatened by it all.

He remembers the parting words of his predecessor and opens the first envelope. The message inside says, "Blame the Relief Society!" He does this and gets off the hook.

About half a year later, the ward is experiencing a new crisis. The bishop quickly opens the second envelope. The message read, "Reorganize!" This he does, and the ward quickly rebounds.

Three months later, at his next crisis, he opens the third envelope. The message inside says, "Prepare three envelopes."
