    Gently nudging a prospect to join

    This is very similar to how Pennsylvania operates. We are permitted to tell someone you think they would be a good fit / invite them to join, but they still have to pass all the usual processes to join.

    Petitioned to join Commandry

    Well that is quite a trip! My two options are about 45 min from home or work!

    Petitioned to join Commandry

    So, I broke down and petitioned to join Damascus Commandry No 95, which meets in the building where My Blue Lodge and HRA Chapter also meet. Frankly I have done zero research into the path ahead here, but I figured I may have some spare time as I will no longer be High Priest and the only...

    I want to join in masonic

    It appears you are from the UAE. If this is the case there are no Lodges in your area as your Government does not allow Freemasonry to exist in your Country. Unless you move to somewhere where Freemasonry is allowed to operate you can not join.

    Tennessee Freemasons expelled a straight man for 'promoting homosexuality'

    The impression I got was he was hoping saner minds would prevail at the GL level since the decision 7 years ago. The article implied the Bretheran at his Lodge all supported him and he would have been aqutied there.

    Tennessee Freemasons expelled a straight man for 'promoting homosexuality'

    Thanks for that link. I find it interesting that it seems he could have avoided expulsion had he permitted his home Lodge to hold the trial. Putting this in the hands of the Grand Lodge of TN sealed his fate before the trial even began.

    Fraternal Swords Aren't Always Masonic

    Various Fraternal swords are in abundance at flea markets, in antique sshops, even in some gun stores. They often look "pretty" and are often very over priced by those trying to sell them assuming "looks fancy" = Highly valuable. A couple of "fer instances." As a bit of a back story I was...

    Just to add my 2 cents. It is not "One of the highest ranks in freemasonry" as there are no "ranks" as we all meet as equals. No doubt he was a man of distinction who did good for Freemasonry in general and the AASR in particular, but that does not make him any higher "rank" than any other...
