    Officers in the Lodge

    In PA, elected officers are required to wear a tuxedo with tails. Everyone else must be in suit and tie. The requirement is set by Grand Lodge so it is consistent in every lodge. There are some lodges that require everyone (officers, members, & visitors) to be in tails.

    Is there a difference?

    Its all in the content. I know lodges that have average buildings with but make great Masons and I know lodges that have beautiful buildings with tons of money and make poor Masons. Its all about what you want from Freemasonry. If you want a certain type of Masonic experience, do...

    Officer position

    The first chair I ever sat in was Junior Deacon. I was not appointed to that chair but the guy who was was sick and didnt make many meetings so I sat there for a few months.

    What does Masonry mean to you?

    Freemasonry is me and I am Freemasonry. It is not merely something I do; it is something I live. The person I have become because of my association with this Fraternity is the person I always hoped I would be. I am more compassionate, have more patience, more intellectual, and most importantly...

    Raised to the third!

    Congrats, Brother! It has only just begun. The Blue Lodge is so full of philosophy and symbolism. You will spend the rest of your life analyzing it and learning to apply it to your life.

    Received The Scottish Rite Degrees

    I agree about the 18th. I expected much more from the Rosicrucian degree. Maybe there is much more there and I have not yet found it. I am hoping to see the degree many more times and learn it inside and out to find the true symbolism behind it. I loved the 31st and 32nd Degrees. They seemed...

    2011 Proposed Grand Lodge Resolutions

    Isn't that what "taking a good man & making him better" means? No, that's taking a bad man and making him good. That's not our business. Rehabilitation is a word for taking a person with an extremely bad habit (be it addiction, theft, what have you) and making them a functional member of...

    What to say to anti-masons at church?

    Now, I advertise my membership all the time and I love when anti-masons attempt to argue with me. I just remain calm and answer back professionally with a smile on my face and watch them get all heated. It's fun for me.
