    My name is Jonathan Cowley, I have been studying for over a year with a friend who is a mason. My grandfather is also a mason and shriner. I spoke with him about joining and he is against it and will give no help with advise on joining or petitioning. Anyone have a clue on why he is against me joining?

    Very strange. I have no idea why. Most men would be ecstatic if another family member asked about joining.

    My Grandpa, Ollie Laurence Irvin Jr MM, Shriner from Georga, is all for it. I just haven't petitioned for a lodge yet. Just moved to Chandler AZ. Anyone have any suggestions? I was under Capt. Ronald Byron Luther, RIP, from Missouri Lodge of Research, also Marshal an Horace Fox from Boiling Springs NC #383. Walking in darkness. Longing to be in the light.

    Why do you want to join the fraternity?

    Hello! It's hard to speculate without knowing either of you. Have you asked him why he'd be opposed?

    Here is the contact info for the lodge in Chandler. I'd suggest giving them a call and going from there. Good luck!

    To help others. Charity extends the grave. To be a dedicated servant to the fraternity, community, and my family. Also I believe whole hearted this is where the GA is directing me in my life that through guidance, constructive criticism of the Order, and knowledge of others, I may reach my full potential as a fellow traveler while on this earth.

    He must have some turmoil inside. May not be about you. I always look to my answers or questioning. Answer truthfully. Search your heart. Then approach him again. My family didn't talk to me at all until I asked the right questions.

    I want to join because I want to become a better person and to finally learn truth. There's so much to learn and only so little I can obtain on my own. I realize it is a life long journey but I'm ready for it
