Perhaps this has happened to someone else?
In the last two weeks, not one, but two people were reinstated in my congregation. Each were completely separate cases. In both cases I was the chairman on the comittee that disfellowshipped them less than two years ago.
How strange it is to be in this position. Struggling fiercely with my own faith. Totally inactive myself.
In the brief time it's taken, they've done a 180 and so have I.
Like I said, this is a weird feeling.
