Why quote from the Bible? The Holy Bible is My Great Light, but even if it is not the same Source of Light as yours, we should recognize that it includes great truths, just like many other volumes of Sacred Law and it is prudent for us to not dismiss their Light simply because we follow a different Faith.
Proverbs 19:11 “A person’s wisdom yields patience; It is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.”New Segment: In The News

Where? Cincinnati Lodge No. 3 in Morristown NJ
When? February 8th 2013 around 10:30 pm
A man broke through the front doors of the Lodge carrying jugs full of gasoline.
A Lodge caretaker happened to be inside the Lodge at the time and managed to wrestle and restrain the man until the police came to arrest him. The brother sustained minor injuries and the Lodge’s only reported damaged was as a result of the combustible that was spilled in the ordeal.

We discuss two forms of Masonic Education: Structured and Organic. I define one as the specific set of educational materials that are provided to Masons by their respective Lodges and Grand Lodges. These include: Masonic Leadership Training, Master Mason Examination, etc.Another form of Masonic Education is what I call Organic Education. It is formed from a Brother’s curiosity and determination to grow as a Man and Mason. This is achieved through their personal research to increase their Masonic knowledge. It also included fellowship. In Closing, we want to thank all of the Brothers who participated in answering the Question of the Week last week. Your involvement makes this project a lot more interesting and effective in fomenting Fellowship and Masonic Education. This program will continue to improve with your support.
