TYoaBM – The first Missed Meeting of 2024

This evening was my first Missed Masonic Meeting of 2024!

This evening was the first Wrexhamian Lodge Meeting of 2024, and we had a 3rd degree planned for the newest Blood Bike member.

My mother has very recently had a knee replacement operation, and my father has been looking after her. Since he missed the Maesgwyn Lodge’s meeting on Monday, I offered to go look after her this evening so he could have a night off and see his friend get his 3rd.

I also have another Lodge meeting in the morning, so I felt it was better to sacrifice this evenings meeting to allow my father have a break. And it is his birthday tomorrow.

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.
