Masonic Companion

Canada, EnglishCulture

Hello citizens of Gotham. We live in strange times. Belonging, trusting, knowing- needs of the lost boys that prompt mature types to hunt for answers. We tire of platitudes and sound bites and if we have a shred of insight, we value authenticity. If you believe leadership is about control, or keeping people poor is a good way to keep them distracted, Freemasonry isn't going to work for you. It's an opportunity to have something rare; to learn from our history; to live in a world a peace within yourself. It is a place to congregate; anachronistic but true to obligations. People listen to radio alone. Making it informative and interesting- you bring the curiosity. Join me. Masonic Companion will connect us in the tyled recesses of the mind. Graham
