languishing in temple system limbo, reset the "shared" date" ?
I have no idea what to do about those persons who have been languishing in limbo for several years after being shared with the temple system. Is it possible to unshare them with the temple system and then share them again to the temple? Wouldn't that reset the Shared with Temple date? Would this possibly bring them out of limbo? Or are they in limbo because another relative just hasn't picked up the reservation yet to take the name to the temple?
It is my understanding that the "cannot be shared again" means that a person requesting the reservation from the temple system on a 90 day reservation, THAT PERSON cannot then share or send the reservation to someone else.
There is the function available to "unshare" with the temple and it will put the person back onto your reservation list. The "Share with Temple" option is still there. I just tried this with a reservation which I had shared with the temple a few days ago and it worked. I was able to "unshare with temple" and then "share with temple" again. It then showed a new date .
My question is, will this work for persons who have been in the temple system for several years? Has anyone tried it? Also, would it bring them out of limbo? Or are they in limbo because another relative just hasn't picked up the reservation yet to take the name to the temple?
(I don't have any old reservations to try this with. I am a new T&FH consultant in my ward. So I'm wondering about it in order to help others.)
