Understanding is essential to survival. Freemasons are expected to demonstrate their understanding by conducting themselves with humility that comes from insight. Not superior but dedicated to an inclusive way of living. Whether one has the discipline to achieve is known in hindsight. We could be members of any number of organizations but it has distinct features. Dedication is never supposed to be for everyone. Freemasonry is what it is,applicable to those who are open to it. Just like many other callings. We hope we can be honest, as much with ourselves as with others. We want to be the reliable neighbour you can call upon when in need. If you believe that one can find beauty and joy in spite of challenges in life then we have that in common. Masonic Companion

Upcoming Broadcasts

Did we step out from under the rule of religion? Did we dispose the despot? Did we create the Republic? Did we fight for freedom? Wars scar our souls yet we repeat it. Church stains our conscience but what alternative. Is the 21st Century mason being launched by access to information into a new, unforeseen level of insight? Are the contemplative freemasons becoming as profits of old? Writers have offered so many opinion pieces, it is difficult to keep up with the flow. The fork in the road is whether we are satisfied by throwing support behind an opinion on symbols or past events or follow the one less traveled, hopeful we can know more and answer more. One theme is clear. There are sacred opinions that need to be studied. How can we determine decline when we can't agree on success? And if we step back from the noise and the fray and approach our work with common sense, we may have to admit- the goals are neither hidden nor obvious. They are a state of mind. Let's pull the rocking chair closer to the radio, next to a roaring fire with a cup of tea nearby. I'll bring the cribbage board for an evening about the revelations that answer our questions. See you soon. Graham
