The Mason's Words: The History and Evolution of the American Masonic Ritual

by Robert Davis, KYCH, 33° 




Our next meeting of the Book Club will be on Tuesday, February 16, 2016. At this meeting, we will be discussing the The Mason's Words: The History and Evolution of the American Masonic Ritual by Robert Davis, Executive Secretary of the Guthrie Scottish Rite Bodies in Oklahoma. He is a Past Master of three Masonic lodges, and served as the charter Master of Guildhall Lodge No. 553, a traditional practices lodge in Oklahoma. He is a KYCH, a 33° Mason, and recipient of the Grand Cross.

From Amazon:

"Freemasonry is entirely built around traditions. From time immemorial, those who have belonged to the world's oldest and largest fraternal order have metaphorically passed between the pillars of Solomon's Temple to nurture within themselves a harmonious bond between tradition and modernity.

This is the story of the Masonic ritual, the language and ceremonial forms that have evolved into the present structure of American Freemasonry, defined its lodge space, and offered its members tha same stablizing influence of instruction that has prevailed on every continent for nearly 400 years.

The reader will discover that the language of the world's oldest fraternal society has also made its own interesting journey, and been tested by the most powerful and the most humbling of men. The result is, that, in Masonic lodges across America, and, indeed, the world, men from every walk of life, of all ages, every social category and every spiritual and philosophical conviction are able to find a basis for reflection on who they are, why they are here, and what has meaning to them. By its common language delivered in a common culture of fraternal relationship, Freemasonry is enabled to exemplify a universal brotherhood of man."

You can obtain the book on Amazon in both paper and electronic format at a reasonable price.

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 Bro. Hansch's house, so please RSVP by registering here online.

For any questions, please contact Bro. Kenneth Bennett at seniorwarden@saddlebacklaguna672.org.

We hope to see you there!
