Erik's Masonic Journey

Wed, 28 Jun 2000

Today I have many collected links to share with everybody. First, I'd like to direct everybody to visit the webpage of Lyons Jr. Lodge #290 in the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Texas. Speaking of Prince Hall lodges, I found this page and this page which talk about the efforts of Masons in Alabama to convince the Grand Lodge of Alabama to recognize Prince Hall Masonry. It sounds like they could use support! And speaking of the south, I also came across the Louisiana Masonic Family. It is a very nicely designed page with plenty of great information, including this excellent article about MW Thomas Smith Webb, the man who wrote much of the ritual used in American Masonry today.

Many Masons are doubtlessly aware of the discussions going on about the decline in membership in many of our Lodges. I was very pleased to find this quote by Bro. Åke Eldberg on alt.freemasonry:

I also find it hard to believe that the survival of Fremasonry is at stake; our fraternity will see increases and decreases in numbers over time, but it will survive. Even in Eastern Block countries where it has been outlawed for decades, lodges reappear now. The most important thing isn't to make Masonry attractive to many people, but to preserve the important values that it stands for and the lessons it has to teach.

Bro. Eldberg is another of those extremely intelligent Masons who always has worthwhile thoughts and opinions to share. I would encourage everybody to visit his Anti-Masonry debunking website.
