In the world of Freemasonry we are facing some troubling times with the outbreak of Covid 19 and the emergence of the Black Lives Matter protests. As Masons we are taught that the “the compasses to the Craft for by due attention to their use we are taught to circumscribe our our desires and keep our passions within due bounds”. Remember during these times that we are Masons and our teaching hold us to a higher level.
As Masons we will get through these troubling times together and we will meet again in lodge as brothers.
