    I have 3 offices I've been asked to serve in this coming year they being Junior Deacon, Junior Warden and Royal Arch Captain and installation starting tomorrow night I don't know why but all of a sudden I'm nervous and I don't know why I'm not going to lie I'm very honored that my fellow Brethren think I'm worth enough to serve in these positions and I've filled in for them many times I guess it doesn't help that I've never served in any office in any masonic body before not even blue lodge . Has anyone else ever been nervous taking up a office for the first time ??

    They asked me to be Chaplain next year & I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous. Don't worry Brother, you'll be fine & do a great job. The mere fact that you're willing to accept the challenge speaks volumes about your character & determination. And it's those TWO things that will carry you through.
    Fraternally - from a fellow nervous brother,
    Robert
