Erik's Masonic Journey

Tue, 26 Sep 2000

Didn't I used to have some sort of on-line Masonic page that I was working on? Oh yeah, here it is! Wow, I feel like once again I've let down my readers by not posting anything in over a month, but I've got some great stuff to share now, which will hopefully get some folks coming back here for more. First, I came across the Masonic Renewal Committee of North America, which is dedicated to renewing interest in Masonry. They have some interesting books available. Are there any members of this organization out there? If so, please drop me an e-mail.

For any South African Masons out there, there's now an eGroup for you! I also found a page titled Twenty-First Century Freemasonry that has some interesting ideas. Hopefully the author of the page will continue updating it, and sharing his ideas with the world.

While not directly related to Freemasonry, these next links have to do with some of our sublime fraternity's lessons and goals. Ontario Consultants Religious Tolerance is an excellent page full of great information. Also great reading is this page about Banned Books Week, from which I have pulled this insightful and moving quote:

"If all mankind minus one, were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind. Were an opinion a personal possession of no value except to the owner; if to be obstructed in the enjoyment of it were simply a private injury, it would make some difference whether the injury was inflicted only on a few persons or on many. But the peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error." - On Liberty, John Stuart Mill

As for my Masonic education, it continues slowly. A continually busy life has kept me from my studies far too often, and I have yet to even prove my proficiency in the Fellowcraft degree. I am working on it, though, so just bear with me.
