Wardens and Brethren,
As we head into another month of social distancing,
I hope all are healthy and safe. I honestly don’t really care for
the term “social distancing”, during this time we really
shouldn't be socially distant, just physically distant.
Freemasonry doesn’t work without being social. Holding
meetings virtually, calling, texting, emailing, and using one of
the many forms of social media is a great way for us to still
talk with the brethren. Those are just some of the forms that
we can physically distance ourselves but still not be socially
Last month, we held our first zoom meeting, and
first I want to thank all the brethren who attended. It was great
to see the brethren again. It was my goal to run the meeting as
close as a normal in lodge meeting goes and I think it went
pretty well. This month we will be holding our stated
communication virtually again via zoom. The zoom meeting
information will be emailed out and attached to the monthly
notice. I hope to see more brethren join us this month, and as a
reminder we will be opening on our normal day and time,
Tuesday May 12, 7pm.
This month's program will be presented by RW
Brother Michael Jarzabek, a member of several lodges
including Ezekiel Bates Lodge in Massachusetts. His
program is titled “The Mason with a Thousand Faces”. This
talk is inspired by Joseph Campbell’s 1949 book, “The Hero
with a Thousand Faces.” As such it is an exploration of: the
various stages of the Hero’s Journey, its mythological roots,
Masonic exemplifications, and the practical application of this
useful art by the contemplative man.
I hope to see everybody in lodge for what is going to
be a great program and a great night of brotherhood.
May the Blessings of Heaven rest upon us,
Franklin Lodge #20
