    I think u might be a little confused brother. If u have taken ur 1st degree and given your proficiency than you are about too be passed to fellow craft....nothing to worry about as far as getting tounge tied. Not a whole lot for you to say during the degree.....have fun brother

    So you were presenting your fc proficiency to open lodge and not going through the degree?

    I know there are.differences from jurisdiction to jurisdiction but you have me thoroughly confused brother. Being passed is the degree. But what you described above is the proficiency. Either way congrats

    Thanks, and your original post had me confused as to what it would be considered haha, my first degree i was led through and then given work on it, then went through it and now am fellow craft, either way...still learning and moving on! Lol only downside is i had a ring ordered which was supposed to be 8-12weeks for delivery, and they sent it in 6 so now i got it on my dresser staring at me lol

    Did you receive the full form FC degree, with the stairwell lecture? Some jurisdictions include it, some do not , some it is optional. If you have not yet received the stairwell lecture, then I highly recommend it! Find a nearby lodge, and see when it will be presented.
