L.A. Masonic Temple: Renovating The Past… Into The Future

“The hottest ticket in Los Angeles at the moment isn’t for a new restaurant, a pop concert or a sports showdown – it’s for the re-opening of a Masonic Temple on Wilshire Boulevard, now the home of the Marciano Art Foundation.”

This is the headline at KCET describing the re-opening of the old Masonic Temple… not at as Masonic Temple, but as a Museum of Modern Art- that also will strive towards celebrating the building unique past. Continue reading

The Blank Space In The Sentence

As members of the Free Masonic Fraternity, one of our constant worries seems to pivot around the notion of membership drives, membership retention… membership- whatever’s ! I have, and a great many others, written and spoken at length about the need to; more or less, let membership come as it may, and that to try to too hard… well, by trying to hard we might not be attracting the “right” Candidates anyhow. But, that doesn’t mean that we stop trying. In the words of financial acquaintance of mine- you don’t try or even work harder, you only try to work wiser. Continue reading

Finally, Some “Real” History for the 300 Year Birthday Party!

Throughout the past several months, Freemasons the world over have been gearing up for the all-important Tercentenary Celebration of the founding of the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE). Somewhere in the middle of all of this, I began to feel as though we were celebrating ONLY the Institution, and not the many good men who have acted as the living stones that make up our Fraternity. Today, an article crossed the news feed that offered a bit of perspective into the lives of the Freemasons of yesteryear.  Continue reading

A Look Inside Detroit’s Masonic Temple

Few Masonic Structures are known the world over, whether it be to Masonic or Secular groups, as is the famed Masonic Temple of Detroit, Michigan. When it was completed at 500 Temple St. in 1926, it was indeed an architectural marvel. Since then, the Temple has held the distinction (since the demolition of the Temple at Chicago in 1939), as the World’s largest Masonic Temple.   Continue reading

Church and Masons Fight Over Pastor’s Corpse

In a bizarre occurrence in Monrovia, Liberia on this last Saturday, 5 people were taken to a local hospital after fighting broke out- over WHO should bury a deceased Pastor! The melee broke out while parishioners were transporting the corpse of Pastor Washington. Washington, who must have been dearly beloved by his congregation and his Masonic Lodge, ended up having his casket pulled from the cemetery bound hearse by members of the Bernard Farm Masonic Craft- who claimed they had an Obligation to provide Masonic burial for their deceased Brother.

Terra Masonica- Around The World In 80 Lodges

Our dear friend and Bro. Al McClelland shared with this Site some finishing touches on a project that he has had considerable involvement with- Terra Masonica: Around The World In 80 Lodges. This Work was conceived and produced by  Bro. Tristan Bourlard– an extremely accomplished Filmmaker and Author. At first glance, the project seems like a multitude of other films about Freemasonry. But, it is MUCH more than that… more than you might imagine! Continue reading

The Grand Lodge Of Ireland- Inside The Building At Molesworth St.

We found a news item that is kind of neat, and since everyone seems to love Irish Freemasonry, thought a short write up was in order. What better posting could there be on a Saturday afternoon, than one including a description of the very awesome private bar (they have BOOKS and comfortable looking chairs), along with a tour of the Lodge in general.
