We have the Gavel !

W:.M:. Vital successfully lead a band of his merry men last night to Mokanna Lodge and took the Traveling Gavel…. I would suspect that some ruffians will come calling soon to try to take it to their own Lodge… Travel Travel Travel !

You have passed your third degree exam and now you are a Master Mason.

So now what?

You have several choices in front of you.

1. Become an officer.

2. Become proficient in ritual work.

3. Move on to the other degrees.

4. Join one of the many other organizations only a Master Mason can join.

5. Or slowly fade away like so many do never to be seen or heard from, except for dues      time.

There are other options but these are the most prevalent.

If you make the fifth choice in this list you will never know any more about Masonry than you know right now. You will never be any use to the fraternity nor will the organization ever be useful to you.

If you stay with one or more of the top four you will learn how a group can act as a team. You will see how much more the team can accomplish than just one person alone.

This does not mean that we are not individuals. Masonry teaches free thinking and this can only be accomplished through self-sufficiency. A determination to be free from all types of restraints is preferred.

Free thinking will open up your thoughts, your hopes, your aspiration. You will be able to express yourself by using your head and embrace those ideas with your heart.

What all of this means is that you should:

Speak with your head

Listen to your heart

And always, always follow your dreams



“You were saved not by work, but for work. Do it till all is done. By your Inventions, Innovations, Initiatives, Improvements, Involvements, Imaginations, Information, Interventions and Inspirations… Go the extra mile and dare to do it.”
