Start Small | Boost Masonic Education

Like the management philosophy called Kaizen, which focuses on achieving sustainable and progressive improvements in the organization, a lodge can make a commitment to improving ever so slightly but continuously. Imagine improving your lodge experience 1-5% in quality every meeting by making the lodge more efficient and the time spent in a stated communication more edifying. Even if your Lodge seems to be far from that ideal, remember the wise words of Lao Tzu “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step”

This topic was inspired by Brother Kevin Bauc of Wasco Lodge No. 15 in Oregon

Here are a few suggestions that may help you make masonic education a more prevalent part of your lodge meetings:

  • Improve Efficiency
    • Expedite the monotonous
    • Errors cost time
    • Use the gavel
  • Make it Edifying
    • Symbol of the night
    • Historian’s Minute
    • Short Talks
