Masonic ‘ISMs

-No strangers here, just friends you have not yet met.

 -Friends are angels who lift us to our feet when we have trouble remembering how to fly.

 -Memories give us snow in July and roses in December.

 -Learning is not knowing the what but understanding the why.

 -Our limitations are only in our minds.

 -People may not remember exactly what you did or what you said, but they will always remember how you made them feel.

 -Not only did we take an obligation but we have an obligation to preserve this great organization as our forefathers intended and not to bow to the whim’s of a few misguide would-be- experts who try to make changes without guidance.

 -I love to hear someone point out the faults of Masonry, we are in the presence of a mastermind.  Generations of philosophers have made Masonry what it is today.  When a Brother can plalnly see all it’s faults; he is greater than all of these.

 -Place your hand in a bucket of water the take your hand out — the hole you leave will show how much you will be missed.

 -May the fleas of a thousand camels infest the person who screws up your day and may their arms be too short to scratch.  (not Masonic, but good) Brethren, some of these are light in nature, while others we should remember often. 

I challenge you to think about what it will take to improve your lodge.

When you have several things you want to do, then challenge your members to help make it happen.


                                   THINK about the FUTURE of your LODGE.
