Mediocrity in Masonry…Shame on us!

Overcoming Mediocrity

How long have we been talking about boring business meetings, poor food, lousy fellowship and run down Masonic buildings? The answer is since Chris Hodapp and friends published Laudable Pursuit, and that was way back in the 90s. But we don’t seem to learn form our mistakes nor do we seem capable of doing what […]

Dating the Foundation of English Masonry

Anderson'sConstitutions

Here is the second in a series from writer/researcher Hank Kraychir from his website Gnosis Masonry. I think some may have missed the most important point in the first article , namely that today’s Freemasonry did not grow out of ancient stone guild operative Lodges that gradually became speculative but rather from aristocratic speculative Lodges that were […]

“If you run with wolves, you will learn how to howl. But, if you associate with eagles, you will learn how to soar to great heights.” I was watching a video by Dennis Prager on happiness recently when it suddenly came to me that this had much significance for my Freemasonry and what the Craft […]

Happy Patriots Day

Paul Revere

Once again it is time for The Beehive’s annual Patriot’s Day message. Patriots Day is an obscure holiday celebrated in just one county – Middlesex – in Massachusetts. In the early years of our nation it was a National holiday but gradually July 4th supplanted a similar celebration. Patriot’s Day commemorates the first battles of […]

Where Freemasonry Is Open Misinformation Of The Craft Is Dispelled

Entrance to the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts AF & AM

This is not your grandfather’s Freemasonry, at least not in Boston and the Grand Lodge AF & AM.
