Inside The Freemasons Part 1, SKY 1 T.V. IS HERE!

The much anticipated airing of the first episode of Inside The Freemasons was last week in the U.k. Today, the rest of the world is provided a showing! We reported on this on March 28, 2017. Now, follow along with us as we view, commentate on, and archive these showings.

I watched this first episode, and was actually impressed with the presentation, style, and overall dignity shown towards the Craft and her members. Their appears to be a developing story line surrounding- among others, the Deputy Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of England, and an incoming Candidate who is about to experience his first entrance into the Lodge- that of an Entered Apprentice. We will watch as the two progress down those two pathways, both of which lead towards the goal of Masonry- self betterment and fulfillment in one’s own spirit. Continue reading

Dumb & Dumber… Hoping This Guy Doesn’t Have Kids To Influence!

If we don’t have a “dumbest criminal” section in any Masonic Publications, perhaps now is the time to start one. Officials representing Washington F & A M Lodge #17 in Hamilton, OH are hopeful that spray paint graffiti will be cleaned from the building’s exterior by summer. Most of the time, it is difficult if not impossible to identify the perpetrators in these crimes, many of which deface and destroy historic buildings… Masonic or not! But, this case was a bit different.  Continue reading

Ask One To Be One!

This phrase, known the Masonic world over, now carries with it new intent, as pointed out in an article found in the latest “Indiana Freemason”  , a new method. In days gone by, the notion was for a NON-Mason to go out, find a Mason, and then “Ask the Mason” how he might become a Mason as well. This scheme hearkens back to the old adage that you will get exactly what you need. Effectively, this practice entrusted that only those who were truly interested in becoming Masons would “Ask One to Be One” and petition a Lodge, eventually joining the ranks of the Freemasonic Institution. Continue reading

Open Houses In Utah… Let’s Do It!

The 1st part of the Inside The Freemasons series aired last night on Sky 1, and I am happy for the producers, for all who watched, and for our Fraternity, which I hope will be uplifted and assisted by this publicity. In the meantime, there is no time like the present and no place quite like home to make a difference in everyday Freemasonry.

Utah’s Freemasons are doing just that- carrying on in their own present and down at home in an activity that has been customary for them for some time now. We have LONG touted the benefits of Masonic “Open Houses”, especially when they are done correctly and portray the Fraternity in a solemn and positive light.  Continue reading

Kinds Of Masons

By: Carl H. Claudy

“I am almost through!” The New Brother displayed a
sheaf of cards to the Old Tiler. “Soon I will have joined
them all and become every kind of Mason there is.”

“What do you know about the kinds of Masons there
are?” asked the Old Tiler, interested. “You have not
been a Master Mason long enough to gain all that
knowledge!”

“That’s not hard to gain, with all the brethren poking
petitions at you. There are Scottish Rite Masons and
York Rite Masons and Templar Masons and Chapter
Masons and council Masons and…”
