Waynedale Lodge #739, located on the eastern outskirts of Ft. Wayne, IN is a notably active and productive group. The Lodge is home to Past Grand Master Gregory C. Walbridge (2011-2012), and Past Grand Master Carey B. Carter (2016-2017). Additionally, the Brethren at Waynedale are engaged daily in activities that serve to exemplify Masonic ideals and do so in ways that reach out into their community. Continue reading
At midnight on New Year’s Eve (or 12:00 a.m. on New Year’s Day, depending on your point of view), we find ourselves mumbling through the words, or more often than not, mouthing words and humming the familiar melody, to the famous song Auld Lang Syne. The tune, which began life as a Robert Burns poem, has come to represent an ending, a circumstance of goodbye, a marker which brings about teary eyed reflections of years gone by. Continue reading
My home Lodge, Jackson Lodge #146, is famous for hosting a fabulous Feast Of St. John The Evangelist, usually on a Saturday evening in December closest to the Winter Solstice. Many things in Masonry are like that… having to do with the natural course of things, elements of our planet, the science of our Universe, and a never-ending quest for knowledge of ourselves, each other, the world in which we live, and also in the world(s) to come.
Because of it’s proximity to the Winter Solstice, this is the one Masonic “Event” that many associate with Christmas. As such, there is a FEAST to be had, and always a great group of Brethren to enjoy it with. Even still, with all of the modernization of Freemasonry, the Feast of The Holy St. John is a tradition that doesn’t occur anymore at every Lodge. If this be the case at your Lodge, I would encourage any who have neglected this tradition to please- consider hosting it again! Continue reading
While the multitude of volumes published on Freemasonry all serve a purpose, the bulk of what has been written over the last few hundred years has been extraneous glorification at best… and esoteric hogwash at worst. It… Freemasonry, is really very simple! It is a Fraternal Order, based on Tenets and Underpinnings which Endeavor to make Freemasons BETTER Men.
That’s it, in the proverbial nutshell. Continue reading
Freemasons from Noah Lodge #357 of Fort Myers, Florida are working to put together an All-Star Cast of a show. A Concert featuring Aaron Tippin, Darryl Worley, Ben Allen Band and Zach Stone is taking place this coming Saturday, December 2, 2017. A BONUS to the whole thing, besides great County Music, will be a toy drive to benefit the children of the area. There will also be a V.I.P. event with Tippin and Worley on Friday evening, with food provided. Continue reading
First of all, our condolences and prayers go out to the victims, families of victims, and our world at large in the wake of such a terrible tragedy. With that said, the usual suspects have turned up blaming not only a proliferation of guns in this country, but also of the “Illuminati” and Freemasonry symbolism and structure. Our response to the latter- Rubbish!
Even still, we learn from the following article that “the Illuminati – who for a super-secret cabal are hopeless at hiding themselves – were in evidence: the shooting took place near the Luxor casino with its pyramid, a symbol of Freemasonry.“… As if that’s not enough… “Paddock shot from the 32nd floor and there are 33 levels in the Scottish rite of Freemasonry. Need I say more?” Continue reading
For centuries the Church of Rome has battled not only Freemasonry, but also other groups who have broken rank with the nonsense of the Vatican. Let us not forget that the Lutheran church was not always accepted as “normal”, and Martin Luther risked life and limb when posting his 95 Thesis
(essentially admonishing Rome), to the doorway of Wittenburg Castle.
Meanwhile, Freemasonry still labors in the shadows, and her Catholic members cringe each time a new line of Papal B.S. rolls out from Pope what’s his name….
My advice- QUIT the Catholic Church– or ANY group that does not encourage YOU, as a human being, to be a free thinker and Universally accepting of your fellow mankind.
