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
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
