Greetings from the East,
I want to congratulate Brothers Ray Mistery and Joshua Ruegsegger on being raised to the sublime degree of a Master Mason. This is a monumental occasion in a mason’s life and an experience you’ll seldom forget. After the degree work, I couldn’t help but think back to when I was raised and what the lessons of the third degree meant to me at the time. Now, twenty years later, those same lessons seem to have a different, or perhaps, a deeper meaning. The addition of two decades worth of life experience seems to make the masonic light shine brighter. This shouldn’t be a surprise since we all know that with age comes wisdom. However, it is a good reminder that every mason’s journey is unique and that even though we are all exposed to the same light, we will all see it slightly differently. This diversity is healthy for the craft and helps to cement us together into that sacred band, or society of friends and brothers.
