    Awesome!

    But, it's frowned upon to wear anything masonic until after you've been raised.
    At least here in Texas.

    Congratulations. I hope your journey is as amazing as mine has been.

    I assume you will ne going through your First Degree next Tuesday? If so, the correct terminology is Initiated. When one is Raised, it refers to the Third Degree.

    No way I'm not wearing anything. I already have a bunch of crazy conspiracy theorist asking me weird questions.

    My bad I'm new. I'm sure I'll get all the terms down. They were pretty serious about "the work."

    Dont worry. You will get the lingo down. Once you are an apprentice it will all become as clear as mud! :)

    So I’m not getting initiated I’m going through a ‘reading’ on Tuesday. Not sure what that is. My investigation was approved? I guess I’m not sure the lingo.

    In the jurisdictions of which I’m aware, the petition must be read in open lodge and voted upon.

    In Texas the petition gets read, investigation committee assigned, If the committee finds the petition favorable, then the petition is read again and voted on in open lodge. If the vote passes the petitioner is contacted to setup a date for the EA. (which can happen as soon as 2 days, we meet on Tuesdays and have training or degrees on Thursdays)

    Kind of interesting they told me I am getting initiated then made a mistake. Oh well at least I tried.

    Also I need to be available for the lodge reading

    Are you sure they didn’t tell you that the investigation was favorable?

    I guess a misunderstanding. I had a "read" where they read the read a booklet about being a mason and gave me a small book. There was no vote. So I am already accepted and we're going to pick a calendar date for my first degree this month.

    That would blow my mind if that was true. I guess thats what all the dudes in that one room were talking about. How would they decline you? "Sorry we aren't interested."

    There are several approaches. “The lodge doesn’t feel you are a good fit at this time,” is one I’ve used.
