25 years ago today - Oct 17, 1993

The First Presidency issues a statement concerning procedures for disfellowshipment and excommunication. The 1995-1996 Church Almanac states that this was in response to "extensive publicity given to six recent Church disciplinary councils in Utah." Coordinated by instruction from the Strengthening the Members Committee and Apostle Boyd K. Packer to their stake presidents, six scholars and feminists had been excommunicated or disfellowshipped in September.
