Act by the Plumb | How Freemasonry builds upright men

Listen to Audio


In order for a structure to be soundly built, it has to rest upon a solid level foundation. Otherwise, the higher it rises, the more unstable it becomes. In Freemasonry, we stand before our Brothers as an Upright Man and are instructed to act as such. Today, we will discuss what it means to be an upright man. What does it mean to act by the proverbial plumb? This and more on this episode of The Winding Stairs.

Juan, As always the episode was well done. The 1st movie I thought of was Fiddler on the Roof., and I am not a musical fan. Great story, showing us how we must be flexible and adapt to change. How important family and community is. Watch it again, and be inspired again. TRADITION!!!

As always, looking forward to your good work.
