TYoaBM – Masonic Foot Soldiers

This evening was the time of the Maesgwyn Lodge of Installed Masters.

I am the Secretary of this Lodge, so it is a weird one where I have more work to do in the run up to the actual meeting than I do in the meeting. But saying that, being Secretary does have it’s perks.

A local Mason has been traveling about the country giving talks on Masonic Foot soldiers and traveling Lodges. This is a talk I have wanted to hear, but have not had the chance to get to  yet. I had just seen an for a semi-local talk when I realised something. 

I am the Secretary for an IM Lodge.

I book what talks we get!

So I poked the speaker on Twitter and booked him to come give us his talk. And I really enjoyed it.

Freemasonry (Craft)

One of the oldest social and charitable organisations in the world, Freemasonry's roots lie in the traditions of the medieval stonemasons who built our cathedrals and castles.

It is here that a number of the famous elements of Freemasonry find their roots. In the medieval era, stonemasons often travelled around to find work in different locations. To demonstrate their level of qualification, they would use grips, words and signs in order to distinguish themselves from unqualified builders.

Freemasonry uses building analogies to teach members how to lead productive lives that benefit the communities that they live in. In the medieval era, stonemasons wore aprons and gloves to protect themselves while working on shaping rough pieces of stone, but in today’s society Freemasons meet to build friendships and communities rather than cathedrals and castles.
