    Why do we hold stated meetings on the MM degree only?

    I understand some districts or GLs allow for stated meetings to be held on pretty much any degree. However, most BLs, whether allowed or not, hold their meetings on the MM degree.

    Fellowcraft Degree

    Hello R/V/M/W Brethren. I will be having my EA Exam and Fellowcraft Degree tonight. Any advice on what all I should pay special attention to, to make the ceremony all the more interesting? Or should I let it all just be a surprise? Fraternal Regards, Bro. Rhushida
