  1. Elevator Speeches

    There will come a time when you need to explain what the heck Masonry is. Sometimes, you won’t have very long. It’s best to come up with an "elevator speech" for those occasions. My answer is a little dramatic: The world is an awful place, and…

  2. Funding a Lodge from the Ground Up - V∴I∴ Jason Mitchell

    This was all originally written by V∴I∴ Brother Jason Mitchell in the comments of this post. All I’ve done is format it for easier sharing - many thanks to Brother Mitchell for writing this in the first place. Funding a Lodge/Organization is something that is important…

  3. Destroying the 24-Inch Gauge

    It’s been kind of a crazy period of time. Lately, I’ve been really stretching the limits of my 24-inch gauge. I am really enjoying it, but it’s not easy. I love pouring my efforts into all things, especially Masonry, but I definitely need to…

  4. Royal & Select Master Degrees

    Wow, what a wild ride. I had been given some "hints" regarding the Council degrees, but I still wasn’t prepared. The Royal Master degree in particular was very beautiful! The solemnity of the soliloquiy gave me shivers. There’s a lot that I would like to discuss,…

  7. Advanced to the Mark Master Degree!

    Today I was advanced to the degree of Mark Master Mason! I was one of three candidates. It was a fun and interesting experience. The degree team did a great job despite having a bunch of peoople missing - those filling in did very admirably. There was joviality (something very…

  8. Handley Lodge Captures the Travel Gavel

    Where the magic happens: Last night was pretty great! Fort Worth Lodge had its stated meeting night, and I was pleasantly surprised to see so many visitors - at first only minorly so, then majorly so. I shared the elevator with three or four brothers from Handley Lodge on the…
