Whence Came You? - Freemasonry discussed and Masonic research for today's Freemason

This week, how can we adjust our lives to be more Masonic, and connect with the people around us? Is the answer truly in putting down our phones and electronics? Are they truly a plague upon modern mankind? We’ll explore this idea in a piece by Darin A. Lahners, where he lays out many of the significant issues with mental health and our dependence on electronics. Then Ill. Bro. Harrison tells us about famous last words--those words spoken by prolific and interesting people throughout history, at the end of their earthly existence. We'll explore the idea of Egregore and Freemasonry, a...

Whence Came You? - Freemasonry discussed and Masonic research for today's Freemason

This week, we get a rundown of what happened at the Midwest Conference of Masonic Education, 2022, in Kansas City, MO. What were some of the ideas passed around from state education officer to state education officer regarding best practices and discoveries within the realm of Masonic education? Then we'll hear, from Greg Knott, who tells us about a recent visit he had to a used bookstore. What treasures did he find? Finally, we'll wrap it up with reflections on being your own teacher--what that means and the duality of such an idea. Truth from within, or teenage angst? Going against the...

Whence Came You? - Freemasonry discussed and Masonic research for today's Freemason

This week, is there value in the rubbish of the temple? What do those less than perfect stones do for us for the rest of our lives? Could they be lessons preparing us for future obstacles? Then we'll hear a response from a festive board regarding the 47th problem of Euclid. At a recent festive board, one Brother brings a personal touch to his 47th problem of Euclid response in a special segment he's recorded for us.

Whence Came You? - Freemasonry discussed and Masonic research for today's Freemason

This week, how critical is the idea of an individual degree and an individual catechism to the future of Freemasonry? We’ll explore a piece by William H. Boyd in which he outlines the several reasons why the future of the Craft depends on the practice of individual degrees and catechisms. Then, we'll talk about the investigation committee and the concerns of a Grand Lodge in the 1950s. As the Grand Lodge put it, is there a “serious lack of discretion?” We’ll explore some of the questions that we are charged to find the answers to within the Investigation committee and talk about how...

Whence Came You? - Freemasonry discussed and Masonic research for today's Freemason

This week, we wrap up the contemporary look at Whither Are We Traveling with part 11 of Darin A. Lahner's series. Are there not too many well-meaning Brethren working overtime to make Freemasonry something other than Freemasonry? Should we abandon free will and accord? Should we take positions on public issues of the day? Go all out for materialism? Subsidize? Then we hear a tale from Illustrious Brother Steven L. Harrison in this week's Masonic Minute about Winston Churchill--The most difficult decision he ever had to make-- to fire on allies. We wrap it up with a Tarot card draw and...

Whence Came You? - Freemasonry discussed and Masonic research for today's Freemason

This week, Whither Are We Traveling? (Pt 10) and Worshipful Brother Darin A. Lahners' contemporary examination of the text. Hasn't the so-called 'century of the common man' contributed to making our fraternity a little too common? Is it so easy for anybody to join Freemasonry? And what happens when common men become part of our uncommon fraternity? Ritual cheapened? The public image of the fraternity sullied? Then, we'll take a look at a recent article from the Knight Templar Magazine--all about the history of Golgotha and how it got its name—"the place of the skull." How did this place get...

Whence Came You? - Freemasonry discussed and Masonic research for today's Freemason

This week, "What has become of that course of moral instruction, veiled and illustrated by symbols that Freemasonry is supposed to be?" Has Freemasonry lost its Masonic education edge? Are we too hung up on crafted programs created by our membership committees that change every year? What could be a simple way of ensuring Masonic education finds its way to every member? Then, we've got an all-new Masonic Minute with Ill. Bro. Steven L. Harrison in which he discusses the topic of heaven and earth. A supreme philosophical outlook on what God is, and how the end of time as we know it will...

Whence Came You? - Freemasonry discussed and Masonic research for today's Freemason

This week, Darin A. Lahners dives into the seventh question of "Whither Are We Traveling?" Do we pay enough attention to the festive board? Does your lodge know the difference between a festive board and a table lodge? If the answer is, "… It's the same thing.", I'm sorry to tell you that's just not true. We'll break apart the differences. We'll talk about the necessity for the festive board--one of Freemasonry's fundamental tools for making this world better by making good men better. Then we'll hear the tale of Nathaniel Beverly Tucker, as illustrious Brother Steven L. Harrison takes us...

Whence Came You? - Freemasonry discussed and Masonic research for today's Freemason

This week, we're back with part seven of Whither Are We Traveling? Darin Lahners gives his generational outlook on the question of whether America's passion for bigness and efficiency has ruined Masonic charity. Why do we, as Americans, need to be acknowledged for our charitable efforts? Doesn't looking for acknowledgment stray from the path of altruism? Then, a staple of romanticized Freemasonry, the Lodge Over Simpkin's Store, an original poem written by Most Worship Lawrence N. Greenleaf for the Grand Lodge of Colorado. Some say it was a real place. Brother Patrick Dey takes on The Lodge...
