From the East  (March 2017)

 

Brethren,


As I sat here thinking about what I wanted to write for this trestle board message, I was thinking about the various words of wisdom that our ritual tries to impart on us. There is one that kept coming back to me and I think it fits perfectly with the current events happening within our Lodge, which is that the principal tenets of Freemasonry are Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth.


According to the Entered Apprentice Lecture, the tenets render us affectionate, generous, and just. Brotherly Love unites masonry in true friendship, providing relief to the distressed is a duty incumbent upon all men, especially Masons, and to be good and true is one of the first lessons we are taught in Masonry.


Recently we had a Master Mason Degree that without the help of other Lodges showing their brotherly love and coming to our relief this would not have gone off as well as it did. This is also due to me being able to reach out for their help by being truthful in telling them that I was not able to accomplish the feat myself.


We also had the experience of helping out another Lodges’ Table Lodge. We agreed to help them due to these principal tenets of ours. Thanks to our Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth, we were able to be there for another Lodge that has been able to help us in our previous Table Lodges of our own.


Next time you are in Lodge, try to pay a little closer attention to the various Masonic lessons that are happening in the Lodge room. Try to see how they fit in your own life as we continually strive to be the best men we can.


Sincerely and Fraternally,


Justin M. Winter
Worshipful Master
