Have You Joined the Masonic Book Club!
While taking fellowship with the Brethren of Allied Lodge No. 1170 yesterday, during a social for a man interested in joining their Lodge, I had an enlightening conversation with Bro. Bill Thomas. We discussed everything from the Baltimore Conference to Lodge Officers, and then some. And as is usual, when having a conversation with one of the Brethren that's been around a while, Bro. Bill removes another veil, thus bringing Freemasonry to greater transparency and exposing me to further Light in the Craft.
"Have you ever heard of the Masonic Book Club?"
Bethren, this was news to me, as I had never heard of such a thing. For $20, you get yearly membership and a reprinting of some Masonic classic, typically written before 1920. As many of you know, such books are timely, and unfortunately immediately relevant to the same issues that we experience today in 21st Century Masonry. Beyond that, it's a great way for a Mason to build up his library of rare classics not so easily found.
I went and joined today at this link- the Masonic Book Club. The site is simple and easy to use, particularly if you have a PayPal account.
There's so much to know and learn within this honorable profession, and this seems like a great departure point from which to begin Travel.
