    I totally agree. When I was researching Masonry prior to joining I purposefully avoided descriptions of rituals as I wanted to experience it first hand.

    For me, I like all of my degrees for different reasons

    My EA degree, I had a Bro. Virginia and one from Maryland at my degree. On relieving light, having those two there standing next to me made my feel like I was a part of something bigger than myself.

    FC...the lecture! I loved it so much that it was the first thing I learned once I was raised in Feb 2015

    MM...well...

    I have an Uncle from Ohio who I hadn't seen in 8 years...his dad ( my moms step dad ) was the reason I wanted to become a mason. Unfortunately my Grandfather died of cancer before he could see me petition. But, on his death bed, he told my uncle he wanted me to have his ring,

    So, on the day I was raised,

    My uncle from VA was the third ruffian

    My step dad ( PDDGM in NC, and my catechism coach) put on the first and second sections along with my EA and FC degrees

    And my Uncle from Ohio raised me

    After I was raised , he slipped my grandfathers ring on my finger.

    I go home after the degree, and lo and behold, I have some " pennies from Heaven " lying on the floor

    A very moving day I'd say

    I couldn't possibly pick out one degree being more 'favoured' than the rest - the each have special features, both from the point of view of when I received them and also from participating in conferring them. One that really made an enduring impression on me when I received it is not, properly speaking, a 'degree'. It was the Ceremony of the Board of Installed Masters that I received when Installed as Master of my lodge.
