Just a brief question concerning this practice.
My wife is about to get her annual shepherding call. Frankly, I did not know that this ‘routine’ practice existed. What is the purpose of it?
My wife tells me that the elder said that this was common but beyond that she did not know what to expect. Frankly, I thought these things occurred when a witness is considered ‘spiritually weak’ either due to a fade or because the elder is fishing for a reason to disfellowship the individual.
What should my wife and I expect (not that I am going to be too big a part of it).
