TO Tveta Church in Värmland County, Sweden, where the annual “elk hunt sermon” is being led by pastor Maria Carlsson wearing a elk head and antlers. Says she:

“I’ve been thinking about it all autumn. I wanted to do something fun and a little different. I really wanted it. I’m the only active pastor in the area who is also a licenced hunter, so it seemed fitting. I saw this elk mask in a costume shop and then it hit me, ‘That’s it! That’s what I’m going to do.’ But it was sort of hard to see with the mask on my head, so I was a big concerned I might trip and fall.”

Later,  Carlsson joined the gang and shot an elk:

“I didn’t think I’d get a chance, but it kept coming toward me. I didn’t really think much. I just raised my gun and fired. I had prayed that I’d be able to shoot an elk on my first hunt, so in a way, my prayers were answered I’m hoping to be able to have the heart smoked.”

It’s what Jesus would have wanted.
