    Thankfully, he has faded away. He basically lost interest in Freemasonry. Last I saw on his Facebook page, he was now focusing on radical Marxist politics.

    It reflects actual compasses. Loosen the screw and you can adjust the span. Tighten the screw and you can use the span to draw arcs. Much of geometry flows from its use.

    Do you want a symbolic meaning for that? Nice. I challenge you to do so. For the screw part that is.

    Thank you very much! I am trying to learn and get full understanding of the blue house and all our working tools and our greater and lesser lights.

    I can give you a super important bit of information. You will never know everything about Craft Masonry. Ever. The meanings for things may remain the same but the personal application will change as you live life. JMO

    Anybody who tried to 'take my light' from me would have the living daylights knocked out of them.

    This thankfully isn't a problem where I live - there's no clandestine Masonry here.

    Has anyone heard of Smooth Ashlar Grand Lodge of Lithonia Georgia? A person from there has been looking for financial assistance in North Texas lodges.

    Yes, it is clandestine, though somewhat older. Only GL of GA and PHA GA are regular in that state, though those two are not in amity. If you do a search on the Phyllaxis site, they have a history of the group.

    Tnx Bro Cook. By chance can you recommend some documentation on clandestine masonry? I've seen things such as guarding the West Gate, etc. I would like to find something good that I can present to my lodge members.

    I am WM of East Fork #650, Wylie,Tx. We recently (this week)had a clandestine mason ask for financial assistance & he also informed me that he's asked a couple of other lodges in Dallas with no avail. As I began checking more in to this I discovered his lodge is clandestine. I have furnished his name to surrounding districts as he appears to be asking lodges around here for money. I have discovered he has been doing this since November(1st time he approached my lodge). This now has me wanting to give a "refresher" education on clandestine masons/lodges.
