The Meaning of Masonry

by W.L. Wilmshurst

Our next meeting of the Book Club will be on Tuesday, August 4, 2015.  At this meeting, we will be discussing the classic Masonic book The Meaning of Masonry by W. L. Wilmshurst.   

From Amazon:

"Walter Leslie Wilmshurst (1867-1939) was a mystic with a practical knowledge and profound understanding of the religions of the world...His powerful vision of the rites and rituals of Freemasonry as a spiritual philosophy begins with this book. Here, Masonry is presented as 'a sacramental system' represented not only by the ceremonies as experienced in the initiations, but also by an internal and mystical side, hidden behind the visible symbolism, "available only to the Mason who has learned to use his spiritual imagination and who can appreciate the reality that lies behind the veil." Prominent Masonic author Robert G. Davis calls this book an easy-to-read and gratifying work which affirms Wilmshurst's interpretation: that the progressive lessons of Craft Masonry are nothing less than the spiritual journey of the psyche toward full realization."

You can obtain the book on Amazon in both paper and electronic format at a reasonable price.  There are several editions of the book, and any edition will suffice for our Book Club meeting.

Prior to the meeting, we will be sending out a list of questions to all attendees to encourage thought and foster discussion.

This is a convivial as well as an educational gathering so please feel free to bring a favorite beverage to share, if you like.

Space is limited at Wor. Russ Hennings' house, so please RSVP by registering online here.   

For any questions, please contact Bro.Kenneth Bennett at

We hope to see you there!
