From the East  (April 2017)

 

Brethren,


As most of you are aware the season of spring officially starts on the Vernal Equinox. When was the last time you actually stopped and thought about the seasons? One of the interesting things that Freemasonry has taught me is that the seasons have a lot to do with Geometry.
 

You may recall from the Middle Chamber Lecture of the Fellowcraft Degree
that there are seven liberal arts and sciences. Of these one of the most
important is Geometry. During the lecture we learn that “by geometry the
astronomer is enabled to make his observations, and to ascertain the duration
of times and seasons, years and cycles.” We also learn during the “G” Lecture
of the Fellowcraft Degree that Geometry also allows us to account for the
return of seasons, and the variety of scenes, which each season displays, to the
discerning eye.


An equinox is the moment in which Earth’s equator passes through the center
of the sun. This event occurs twice a year. On these two special days the
amount of day and night is about equal throughout the whole planet. It is from
the equality that we get the world Equinox. In the case of our most recent
equinox, it gets its name for which season it occurs for the Northern half of
the world, coming from a Latin word for spring.


Spring is often thought of as the season of rebirth. Due mainly to the fact that
plants become alive again after the winter months, and the fact that baby
animals seem to be more prominent this time of year too.


This spring season is also a rebirth when it comes to lodge. We have new
candidates in waiting to become Masons. A new Grand Master is going to be
installed also during this season. Hopefully you will feel a rebirth of your
own and come out to lodge once more to share the joy this spring season can
bring.


Sincerely and Fraternally,


Justin M. Winter
Worshipful Master
