No, I’m not making this up. “Glorify me” was actually the prayer topic given to all Toledo UBF members at last years Spring conference. I was there. I heard reports that a similar prayer topic was given this year (Love God, Love your neighbor…but oh most of all love yourself). Last year, I reported how UBF directors praise God but ignore division. About six months later, nothing has been done by Toledo UBF to address the division.
In fact, you would think there are no problems whatsoever in the “great lakes region” UBF…It’s all so wonderful and happy!
The “great lakes” UBF ignores the pain and division that has happened and simply prepares yet another Bible conference.
The prayer topic? “Establish me forever!” With a loose understanding of the Old Testament idea of graciousness, the directors put themselves back in the center of power and authority, claiming “God’s grace through David”, from 2 Kings study.
The report says “This precious time promoted personal dialogue and steps toward greater relational connections among the committee members.” Really… such great relational connections… perhaps we could get a diagram of that :)
