    After doing much work and waiting a time of patience - I am scheduled to be raised on Monday, September 18th, 2017. Wish me luck, Brothers.

    I am nervous - the Brothers at the lodge tell me not to worry, ALMOST everyone survives it. LOL

    Congrats brother fellowcraft. Just remember the lessons you were taught, and you should be fine. Make sure you eat a good meal before you report to the lodge though lol.

    Never known anyone not to survive it :) You're job is the same as other degrees- relax, listen and try to take as much in as you can !

    Congratulations Brother. I trust it was a impactful experience. Now, be sure to turn out for the degree nights for others. There is nothing more inspiring than a full lodge room for degrees when the candidate realizes all those people are there just for them.

    You know how we say don't google until you've done your third ? Time to hit the web as hard as you can....

    Congratulations but just remember, your Third is not an end of a process, but really only the small first step in the lifelong journey as a Master Mason and Brother.

    I would like to echo this remark about going to watch other degrees. It is beneficial to see a lot of people come out to see your degree but also watching the degrees after you have gone through them helps to see and understand them better. I was raised earlier this month and have attended a one day class with my dad so I was able to see all three degrees and I noticed more watching then when I was going through it.
