GreaseSpot Cafe > WayDale Documents > Corps Notes

This is our Corps Notes section where we will present our notes taken from numerous Corps meetings.  These notes will be based on our best recollections from these meetings.

These notes will be written in an unslanted way.  It is not our objective to skew the notes or present them in a way that deliberately portrays The Way and its trustees in a bad light. We believe that you should be allowed draw your own conclusions.

These notes will be as accurate as we can make them, but our recollections are not perfect on all these issues. We believe however, that the substance of the notes will be essentially accurate even if we get some slight details wrong.

These are our personal notes from the weekly Corps meetings. They are very limited in their content.

As Martindale usually talks non stop for hours during these meetings, these notes were only intended to trigger my memory back to that subject being discussed.

These notes in no way represent all that he said. These notes do not convey the manner (and many times anger and outright fury) with which some of these topics were presented.

A typical Corps Morning is two to three hours long. It begins at 9 AM each Wednesday morning in the Prevailing Word Auditorium at TWI HQ and is attended by all the Way Corps serving at TWI HQ. Telephone hookups are mandatory for the "field" corps. These hookups to the meeting are normally played back at night time so that the "field" Corps can continue their secular work.

Corps Morning usually begins with the Associate Corps Director - Rico Magnelli, doing a review of the previous week, and then reading a list of Way Corps Status Changes (people who have "lost their salt" and have been dropped from the ranks).

Way Productions will usually play some music. Occasionally that music will feature songs that are not heard by the general Way follower audience.

The song "Wash My Feet in the Blood of the Wicked" is very popular and usually receives uproarious applause. This song features lyrics about God's enemies being killed (those who have "lost their salt").  During the performance of this song by Mike Martin and the Singing Ladies, a large blood red backdrop is displayed on the stage.

This song was going to be played at a Way Sunday Service, but martindale was advised against it. It has therefore only been performed for selected addiences.

It has been played for the Way Corps on a few occasions and it was played once at the Advanced Class special in Dallas Texas which about 2800 advanced class graduated attended.

Corps Morning 04/08/98


Howard and Emogene Allen go "emeritus". This announcement was made just a couple of weeks after the "emergency financial measures" were announced. The wording in LCM's overall remarks made it clear that it was his (LCM's) decision to retire Howard. It did not appear to be something that Howard had initiated. - 17K

VP & Me


This might take a couple of minutes to open - it's worth it though.

Extensive notes taken during the private Way Corps only "VP & Me" class. Approx 17 hours of class. "VP & Me" is an unpublished tribute book that Martindale wrote for Victor Paul Wierwille. This class is required for all in-residence Corps. - 95K
