Speaking at Spes Novum Lodge in Chicago 6/7



After months of rearranging, canceling, rescheduling and much general mucking about on my part, I am at long last going to be traveling to Chicago and speaking to the brethren of Spes Novum Lodge tomorrow evening - Friday, June 7th. Many thanks to Brother Robert Johnson for his kind invitation.

Granted dispensation in 2017 and chartered by the Grand lodge of Illinois, Spes Novum is a different kind of lodge, one that values education and makes it a centerpiece to all of their meetings. 



With that in mind, I chose to ignore their guideline to speak about charity this month. Because it's June and the Feast of St. John will be sneaking up on us in a couple of weeks, I will instead be exploring the endless range of symbolic concepts to be found jam packed into one of the simplest symbols we find in Masonic ritual: the lowly point within a circle, with its parallel lines.

Why they'd want a Dummy to address them, I can't imagine. Perhaps in deference to my age. 

And that I'm only a tank of gas away.

For more information about visiting Spes Novum Lodge, see their website at www.spesnovum.com and contact their Secretary.
