    Surprise!! You're elected to S.D.

    If you're in Texas, get started on your LIFE program and plan on attending next year's Warden's Retreat. If you're not in Texas you still want to use you time as SD to prepare and qualify for advancement. Watch and listen to everything the JW says and does in his role. Ready, set, GO! And good...

    One Day Masonic Class/Journey

    I approach the question from the perspective that my degrees were MY degrees and I got to experience the lesson first hand as opposed to watching while someone experienced it for me. I will always remember the "feel" of the degrees as I experienced each section. I cherish those memories and I...

    Visiting other Lodges

    If you are a MM and have your dues card with ID, you can visit any lodge recognized by your Grand Lodge. The brethren will examine you if there is a question about your masonic status. Just be properly dressed and if there is a question, it's always better to over dress. I've dropped in on...

    Not passing your examination

    I enjoy taking EAs and FCs to near-by lodges when they confer those degrees so the EA or FC can see the degree at least once while doing their work. It's a great way to explain the work in plain language while they observe it in due form.

    Texas Grand Chapter/Council... Anyone else going?

    You will enjoy the Order of the Silver Trowel very much- it is by far my favorite of all the work. You might- if time permits- review the degree lectures before you take the Silver Trowel just to refresh the material in your mind. Unfortunately my current back problems and doctors appointments...

    Explaining masonry to your kids

    As I grew up our family went to lodge at least two or three times a month. During lodge, other families would visit with each other, play piano, teach each other piano and other things like that. My sisters were were in Jobs Daughters and my father was lodge Secretary, so I don't remember a...

    Letter from George Washington...

    I found a book on Amazon called "Washington's Masonic Correspondence - As Found among the Washington Papers in the Library of Congress" and it has 16 pieces of Bro. George Washington's Masonic letters. .. very interesting!

    Concordant Recognition

    If you are traveling you can check the websites for the bodies you may want to visit. Look for either "Contact Us" or the secretary (equivalent) and send an email enquiring about their recognition requirements. You should also make sure your home Grand Lodge recognizes them as well. That would...

    Higher Degrees

    Awesome. ..
  18. BroBill


    Best thing to do is find a local lodge in your area and visit them. Most lodges post their meetings so find out the meeting time and arrive about 30 minutes before that. The brethren will be happy to answer your questions and those answers will be specific to your situation. Most lodges are used...
