    Brothers!

    Greetings from the Kingdom of Sweden and it's capital Stockholm, which I live just a little bit north of. I am happy to join this forum, as I'm about to enter Freemasonry in less than three weeks, at October 12:th. The Freemasonry have interested me for quite some years by now, so I very much look forward to my reception, although I must admit I am a bit nervous already.

    As a member of two other fraternal orders I do have some experience of this kind of work, but to be honest I do believe that the Freemasonry is one-of-a-kind. The other two orders do have interesting, beutiful and reflectable rituals (I am actually Ceremony master/Conductor in one lodge), but as I understand it the Freemasonry has a bit more depth, a bit more history and, of course, is very, very big and complex in a way other fraternal orders cannot be. Especially since masonry seem to be a lot about working on yourself as a person, which is one of the things that really attract me.

    As a Christian the Swedish Rite seem to be just the right place for me to work on myself to work on becoming both a better human being and a better Christian. In some years I of course also look forward to visiting other rites and systems: the Freemasonry seems fantastic in that way, it's so big and widespread!

    In my everyday life I work as a preschool teacher. I have a passion for traveling and a big interest in theatre and musicals, and also enjoy very much to spend time in the nature, which we have a lot of here.

    I look forward getting to know you and perhaps sharing a bit of my thoughts through my upcoming journey within the Freemasonry. Feel free to ask me any question if you want to know more about me!

    Allt the best

    /Fredrik

    Elixir: Tack, det ska verkligen bli spännande.

    Ripcord22A: Thank you. I really look forward to this. And to speak to all brothers both from Sweden but especially from other countires and rites.
    I'm an Odd Fellow since seven years and reached the last regular degree last year. I'm ceremony master in my lodge. The other order is named Svea Orden and is founded 1793 in Stockholm. Our main interest is early Swedish history and Nordic mythology. The most remarcable is that we have an own island in the archipelago on which we have many of the degrees.

    Thank you, brothers.

    I've now been to lodges and started exploring. I will probably go to at least one lodge meeting every week as a start. I also have to visit the library next week for some good litterature about the degree.

    I'll keep you updated for sure :)

    Our degrees are solemn occasions. As you can tell, our social events include heart felt fellowship and levity. Best of both worlds.

    The world is already full of wisdom, strengh and beauty.

    Freemasonry maybe is like a mirror of the world.
