Masons are Learners
Regardless of your age, your previous experience in the fraternity, your past leadership roles, the honors Masonry has bestowed upon you, you are here to assess yourself, your experiences, enhance their meaning in your life and share knowledge with your Brothers. You are reminded that “…you are to converse with well-informed Brethren, who will always be as ready to give as you will be to receive instruction.” So as learners we need to recognize that
Masonry is a System of Education
Contained in the three degrees are symbols, tools, and lessons that are intended for use in your life. This system of Masonic thought, taken as a whole, provides us a process designed to educate a Mason. This Masonic process should enlighten, improve and motivate us to use our education in our lives, our families, our various professions, our lodges, and in the communities in which we live.
By applying our Masonic education in our daily living, we have, as our ritual says,
“…distinguished ourselves from the rest of the community.”
The journey you have chosen to begin will make Masonry something very special for you. It will raise your curiosity as you become an avid learner in what is truly an enlightening educational system.
We hope you will find as a wise Brother once commented:
“Masonry is not something you just join, it is something you Become.”
