    Human Survival: Collecting Traits and Virtues

    Does Freemasonry have a mascot? If it had a mascot, What would it look like? What would it represent? What does it send as a message to the outside community? Then, we’ll talk about the origin of the human species. What traits does the Homo sapien have, and how did they lead to our current state of modern survival and comfort? And likewise, what are the virtues that have been collected over time to form the civil societies that we live in? Does Freemasonry have something to do with it? Thanks for listenin

    Titles in Leadership

    Titles in Leadership

    This week we explore a conundrum about Lodges. For those of us out there who have no specific dogma in our religions, if we even have one, could Lodge be considered a church? We'll explore this question in great detail. Then, what do female hummingbirds and their flashy feathers have to do with Freemasonry? Here's a clue, flashy colors equals lapel pins and medals. How do we use those? How do we define titles? And should we get rid of titles altogether?

Breath of Fresh Air

This podcast fills a void not just produced by the 2020 pandemic but by the obligations to work & family that can pull us away from the physical lodge. If you’re a seeker and / or joined Freemasonry (or want to) as much for esoteric study as for brotherhood, look no further. Well done!
