Tomorrow is the last day to register for the Masonic Restoration Foundation Symposium in Cincinnati, OH. The list of scheduled speakers is impressive and shows a diverse range of backgrounds and compelling talks. It is most likely too late for those that are traveling from a distance (like...
Over Christmas I was handed a book titled "For the Good of the Order: Examining the Shifting Paradigm within Freemasonry". The author is John Bizzack, PhD, from Lexington Lodge #1 of Lexington, Kentucky. This book attempts to look at Freemasonry in the context of shifting paradigms, and how...
I didn't see that anyone actually addressed your question. The dues are $125 a year, dues are paid directly to Scottish Rite in DC, notices are sent in November due 31 December.

Because of the sensitivities that anything and everything is up to interpretation at Grand Lodge, I would just wear either a Past Master (if you are one, as those aren't uniform, and vary greatly) or just a white Apron.

The DI for our district made the statement at our last stated meeting that a lodge got their charter pulled for having a Chamber of Reflection, I was skeptical of this, as I haven't heard of it happening.
So did it really happen, or was the statement more of a scare tactic?
It isn't common, it is usually individual church leaders more than actual denominations. I have read about Yoga being satanic in nature, and other such statements. Generally it is because church leaders are jealous of your participation, or worried that you are becoming too heavily involved in...
From the Popes recent statements in Brazil he said the following:
â€œThe problem is not having this orientation,â€ he said. â€œWe must be brothers. The problem is lobbying by this orientation, or lobbies of greedy people, political lobbies, Masonic lobbies, so many lobbies. This is the worse...
