    custom aprons

    I wear my custom apron when in lodge and not filling a seat. I see my custom apron as a way to honor and exalt our craft.

    Apron opinions?

    I bought my own custom apron not long after being raised. I see it as another way to honor or reflect the respect I have for the craft. I myself do not care for the cloth aprons available at most lodges. Plus I would hate to travel to a lodge that doesn't offer the pm and be I'll prepared.

    A brother but should he be?

    If your intentions are true to the lodge and masonic in character then you have nothing to fear. Sent From My Freemasonry Pro App

    A brother but should he be?

    A man has to pass by the west gate three times before he is a MM, just ensure you guard it accordingly. If he is as bad as you say he is it won't be hard. Sent From My Freemasonry Pro App

    Side (Fun) Degrees

    Now as I understand my masonic history all appendant bodies really started as "side" degrees that transformed into their own body. I'm not saying they are bad by any means but we run the chance of letting other "side" degrees morph into new bodies if kept unchecked. Which may or may not lead to...

    Side (Fun) Degrees

    I understand why side degrees have come about. But it sounds more to me that blue lodges have gotten, for lack of a better phrase, lazy. If they were to put on the festive boards and such then maybe brothers wouldn't feel the need for side degrees. Sent From My Freemasonry Pro App

    Side (Fun) Degrees

    I'm sorry but I just don't understand the need for "side" degrees. There are enough degrees separate from the " blue lodge" as it is. I am still working on learning and giving all I can to the first 3. Sent From My Freemasonry Pro App

    Strange Things Are Happening To Astronauts

    I think this video is the best example of what we as Freemasons are striving for and what the ultimate goal of our fraternity is. The overview effect that we are all on same basis connected despite any differences. Sent From My Freemasonry Pro App

    An Introduction to Scotch

    No scotch that I know of use US whiskey in their blend. They may use grain alcohol but it's all from Scotland. Unless you buy single malt which has no grain alcohol in it. Sent From My Freemasonry Pro App

    Some Religious Questions

    I agree, well both make valid arguments, both are using logic vs belief. Of which none of us are fully qualified to make except the GAOU. Hence why religion ideology is not to be discussed in lodge. As to this forum we can discuss it, and so for the better as long as we can part on..... Sent...

    World Conference of Masonic Regular Loges

    It is great to see such a meeting in a country that at one point (according to a Brother from Romania that I served with) had outlawed the fraternity. In fact this brother has a interesting story about how he became a MM without his father's knowledge only to find out his father was a MM...

    When do you wear your Master Masons Ring?

    I wear mine everyday, all day, except the shower and when I can't due to my job. (Safety). I have had very few people pick up on it. Most mistake it for a wedding band even though I wear it on my right hand. Sent From My Freemasonry Pro App

    Explaining the "higher" degrees.

    It's my understanding that well the AASR has the first three degrees they have agreed not to confer them (at least here in the US). It's part if the recognition agreement between the Blue Lodge and the AASR. Sent From My Freemasonry Pro App

    What do you like most about My Freemasonry?

    I would like to echo the worldwide aspect of Free Masonry. Having traveled a lot to war zones it's always a pleasure to meet a Brother. I find that I instantly have a second family well overseas. Sent From My Freemasonry Pro App

    Albert Pike: More harm than good?

    The only problem I see with Pike's writings is it's too easy for the crazies to quote them out of context to make some out of this world claim. Sent From My Freemasonry Pro App

    questions brothers ask and answer in public?

    I met a brother in the chow hall just yesterday. All I had to do was say"Hi I noticed your ring from across the room" I introduced myself and what lodge I was from as did he and that was all that needed to be said. He is going to email the schedule for the lodge here and once we are at lodge...
