    I acted as Sr. Deacon for two EA degrees for the first time on Tuesday. Was pretty nervous but I think I did a pretty good job! :drool:

    Congratulations! Great to see you working already!

    If they are EAs and if they did not recognize the errors, you did as good a job as the next man. Remember you are always harder on yourself than your brothers will be. The candidates don't know any better.

    The more you work, the more you learn. The more you learn, the more fun you will have. This is a big piece of what it is all about.
    My favorite part is the Senior Deacon. You get to lead this new candidate in his first masonic experience. It is really cool! Glad you started with this role.

    Congratulations indeed!!

    It is great to hear that you are taking an active role in the degree work! As the other Brother mentioned, the more you work, the easier it will be and the more that you will learn from it! Enjoy.

    Yep! That was my sweet spot. Luckily, I had plus or minus twenty-five trips during my year in that chair. It was a life experience sure enough.

    Good job brother! Nice to see you progressing so well. Keep up the good work. Masonry owes its future to your generation. What you folks do over the next 30 years will go a long way to predicting the future and health of the craft. Remember, numbers won't be the answer. Quality, with or without numbers, will.

    That's awesome! And so soon after being raised.

    (I really need to get off of my butt and turn in my proficiency... LOL).

    Don't be fooled guys, Brother McClure is a freaking sponge. I am really proud to share the Lodge with him and look forward to tons of great stuff to come.
