Masonic Lodge Meetings | What to avoid and improve

Listen to Audio


Our stated meetings don't have a reputation for being the most amazing in the world. Honestly, sometimes our meetings resemble more a HOA meeting than anything else. But it doesn't have to be that way. Our Fraternity has a long tradition of bestowing the meetings with elements of solemnity and ritual that have the potential of leaving a positive impression in the attendants mind.

On this episode of TWS, I sit down with W. Manny Lozada to revisit a conversation we had a few years ago , where we discuss Meaningful Lodge Experiences. Manny gives us an update on what things he has implemented in Lodge for that purpose. We hope you find this episode edifying.
