    Some of this seems hard to implement...

    Wouldn't this strike you as odd if you were on the receiving end of this vague inquiry? Do most people check with the neighbors? I ask for perspective, since Texas is basically the size of a country. Practice can vary by location. ;)

    That is why it should be called a guide not manual.

    Does that mean that a guide by the GLoT does not have to be abided by? I did notice the seal on the first page .... Reason I ask is that we are going to start having Masonic Investigations workshops. By having a guide from GLoT does that mean one does or does not have to follow the document? Also, who determines the changes/updates to the document? I think that there are going to be many opinions on the "guide" on whether to follow or not. This may be a challenge to try & get others on a positive "same sheet of music" for Texas lodges.

    A manual has words like shall and not will or may.
