Articles include:

• Alpha Males: Trevor Stewart at Alpha Lodge, New Jersey by Jay Hochberg
• Cleaning the Temple by Mark A. Tabbert

...and much, much more.

  1. I have currently produced a video for my lodge (James K Polk #759), and I would like to share it with others.


    The video also plays on our lodge website at:

  2. WB Chris,
    Thank you for writing "Freemasons for Dummies"! My son-in-law is considering petitioning for membership, and a Brother referred him to your book. He found answers to many of his questions there, and when I visited him over the Christmas holiday he shared the book with me. Your book has re-awakened a dormant desire to work in the light of Masonry. I was initiated, passed and raised in 1980 in a lodge in the Philippines, and have not attended since I left that country in 1984. Your humor and matter-of-fact writing style are refreshing, and I read the book from cover to cover over a three-day period. I will be odering my own copy soon, and will be writing to the Secretary of my Mother Lodge to find out how to be brought back into good standing, so I can visit local lodges in Arizona, and possibly affiliate with them in the near future.

    Thanks again for the wake-up call!

  3. Randy,

    That's a great video, EXCEPT that while most hindus would not call themselves "hindu" except perhaps in the Western world, the title "hinduist" is not really a term and one some hindus would find kind of offensive. (In the middle of a conversation about diversity and tolerance.) Just a thought.
