Nothing changes in Heidelberg... 
6th-Mar-2006 06:58 pm
This week, the semestral invitation campaign of Heidelberg UBF started again. When I was in UBF, we made a new flyer with a new picture, text and verse every semester. But since I left UBF, they did not change the flyer any more, and they do not care to have a picture or anything special on it and more. Maybe a sign that they have not much time and ressources, or are completely desillusionized.

The thing I perceive as sheer mockery is that since then (about 5 years ago), they are using the same verse every semester, in large letters on the invitation flyer: "The truth will set you free." It's so cynical, since in UBF the truth is not worth a penny, and instead of setting people free, the leaders try to enslave them and put them under tutelage. For me it is the utmost decpetion and hypocrisy. Shame on you, UBF.

Chris, were you the one in charge of making a new flyer each semester? I ask because About one year after I left UBF, I discovered that one of my duties was no longer being done. I always made copies of Sunday messages. However, one year later I was in the center and observed that the messages that I had copied one year ago were still in the message bin. No one had copied messages since I left. Obviously, copying the messages was simply busy work. Perhaps you and however else was supposed to make flyers left and no one has been raised up to replace them. The directors are too proud to do such menial tasks themselves, so it just does not get done.

Yes, my group was in charge of creating the flyers. There are others who could do it, but obviously it is not considered important any more or they think the flyer is not improvable. It also has the same old plan of site I made 15 years ago. The flyer has not changed a bit.

I have also been in charge of correcting copying the Sunday messages and questionnaires. This is probably done by somebody else now because the messages were one of the major sources of indoctrination and thus considered very important. Of course, they were recycled messages, but with some modifications. Our leader gave the impression that he was very creative writing always new messages and questionnaires. Of course, the leader never corrected his own messages at the PC, never copied messages or questionnaires himself. As you said, he was too proud to do such menial tasks, but he always delegated these tasks to others.
