  • Colours in Freemasonry

    It is obvious that colours are a fundamental element of Masonic symbolism when we view aprons, sashes, as well as other items of regalia in our Lodge rooms. In some higher degrees we can observe wall hangings, robes and other various Masonic accoutrements of various colours. The colours of Masonic

  • As we were

    The scene takes place in Artificer Lodge AF & AM in the town of Bellows Falls, USA. It could be the 1930s and then again it could be the 1950s. Let’s listen in: “Motion carried,” intoned Worshipful Henry Hancock as he gave the gavel one rap. “The next order of

    Every entrant into Freemasonry is informed that ‘no institution can boast a more solid foundation that that on which Freemasonry rests.

  • Mentoring – The Role and the Purpose

    Insanity: Is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results Surely there can be little doubt in anyone’s mind that having welcomed our Initiate into Freemasonry, there has to be some on-going care and concern for his welfare, well-being and comfort within this new Institution of

  • Masonic Education

    When we speak of Masonic education, we are needlessly redundant. Freemasonry is education, simultaneously moral instruction, spiritual enlightenment and intellectual growth so that a man may come to know – and improve – himself. But this isn’t supposed to be a solitary activity; Freemasonry also is a brotherhood. He who
