  1. Second Podcast Episode

    Second episode is up! It’s a triple-threat this week at the Fort Worth 148 Podcast as Brothers Rhit Moore, Grant Gates, and Gabriel Jagush talk about guarding the West Gate. It’s not fun to say, but masonry isn’t for everyone. How do you best…

  5. "The Order of Judas Maccabeus" by R∴W∴ Raymond Beardsly

    I was trying to find out some more info about this Order when it came up a couple of days ago. Found a PDF called "The Pyramid Texts" and figured it would be useful to have this in a more web-friendly format. If you want to read more articles like…

  6. Rant on Degree Work

    If you volunteer for a part in a degree, you should actually know that part and be able to deliver it. We had an FC degree today for an EA who has been waiting quite a while. Very happy for him since he has been putting a lot of effort…

  10. Osirian Musings

    This was originally posted to a private lodge Facebook group for Fort Worth Lodge #148. In the laundromat, I sat down to read a book that Rhit lent me (The Initiatic Experience) and while reading, I had an externally quiet, internally loud "A-HA!" moment. In the second chapter (which is…
