Many writers and thinkers have tried to define free masonry but it really defeats definitions. It is too complex, too profound in conception, too easily expressed in words. Perhaps the simplest and best definition of all, is the phrase "the brotherhood of man under the fatherhood of god." Our masonic forefathers had an understanding of human needs and human aspirations. They may never have dreamed of the mindless computer which governs our lives, or the fission of matter which threatens our lives, but they understood human nature and what motivates the spirit of man. Thus, from the simple process of using stone and mortar for building, they progressed to the most important of life's functions...the building of character.
-Louis L Williams

Brethren, March is upon us and with it the winds of change will bring us out of the darkness of winter and into the fresh light of spring, a new beginning. Speaking of new beginnings, I would like to remind the brethren that we have an EA degree scheduled for March 14th at 7:30 pm.

I hope to see many brothers at the degree, this is the candidates first impression of our lodge and our chance to inspire them.

Remember to live by the plumb,

Chris Smith
