    the ritualistic significance of the Marshal

    I am guessing what you man by "arched", I assume with wands.. if so, we only do that to candidates, WMs, and Installing Masters and MWGMs. And we don't have a Marshal , we have a Director of Ceremonies..

    Four Score, Five Years and a Couple of Days Ago...

Today, I am seen by many as teacher in my lodge, but I am still learning.. but perhaps some of the most valuable lessons I have learning in life and Freemasonry have come from kind and wise men who are now gone. Most are dead...

    Yearly Fee

    What Bro Glen said is correct. I can tell you what I would have done as Lodge Sec, I would have charged you twice. However that first charge would have been prorata (12 months divided by 12 times full months left). However, I would have also given you the option of paying once, and for 14...

    Website about the Kirkwall Scroll

    Nice. I did something like this years ago on another topic...put down what I knew and kept researching and solved one of the historic masonic mysteries in Australia. Was fun and informative. Interactive Facebook is probably a good place to do that today, but here is good to...perhaps even...

    My Deepest Apologies: Is Red or White Wine Best with a Plate of Crow?

    The only way to never make a mistake is go nothing. And, it always incumbent on readers to make their own judgments, and regardless of the quality of the blog, and Chris write a great one, one can never know the whole story from a blog or often, even if you are right in the middle of that...

    Why is the north a place of darkness?

    Agree. In Victoria, Sec and Tres are in the North. WMs & GL Officers in North East

    Watch what you say in here

    “MW Brothers of Light Grand Lodge,” Excellent ! I think I am about to make an advancement in my masonic knowledge. As an aside, after years of annoying Bro Winter on the web... I am pretty sure he is a Freemason. .. but I am quite sure he's enriched my journey..

    Hello from an Australian moving to Houston

    Hello Bro Marcus Go back to your Lodge Secretary Wayne and ask him for a Travel Letter. This will be stamped by GL and serve as a letter of Introduction. Ask the Lodge Sec to include your Degree Dates in that letter. @mvantuyl - if Texas opens in Third, will an EA or FC need anything special...

    Family Of Murdered Texas Mason Suing Lodge For Negligence

    For sure and I certainly hope adequate coverage is in place, but insurance for the organization of Masonry not for the dependents of a murdered Freemason. We raise and give money all the time for people who really account as strangers, surely a Widow and any potential Dependents should...
