Last evening we were again the recipients of generosity expressed by another one our sister Lodges here in Boston. The Master and members Columbian Lodge presented us with a beautifully embroidered banner to celebrate our upcoming constitution. You really must see it in person to appreciate the detail and splendor of this extremely thoughtful gift.
Additionally we were treated last night to a uniquely crafted charge presented to our new Master Masons by Right Worshipful H. Robert Huke III. This charge presented additional light, not only to our new Masons, but also to the rest of us in attendance. The charge achieved what every successful presentation of ritual aspires to do, it educated and provoked thoughtful enquiry and perspective into our degrees which will not be soon forgotten.
