A few months ago, two dozen teachers and priests from the Cedar Hills 9th Ward, Cedar Hills Utah West Stake, began asking one another what they could give their bishop for Christmas.
There were several appropriate options. They could pool their money and buy Bishop J. Spencer Fluhman a new book. Maybe they could present him with tickets to an upcoming ballgame. Or perhaps a new tie would be a practical gift.
In the end, the boys opted for another, less traditional gift. They decided they would work together and earn their Duty To God certificates from their respective priesthood offices and then surprise the bishop with their unified accomplishment. So for several months they followed the outlined, three-pronged tenants of Duty To God (Learn, Share and Act) and made a concentrated push to earn their certificates before Christmas
