Brethren, I thank you all for electing me as your Worshipful Master for 2014. I also congratulate our other elected
and appointed officers. I am excited and humbled by this honor. I hope to continue on the path
of making our light brighter in our community. This lodge and our community have always meant so much to me.
It is my prayer that our fraternity can continue to grow. Douglas MacArthur said "Free Masonry embraces the highest
moral laws and will bear the test of any system of ethics of philosophy ever promulgated for the uplift of man"
Brethren, it is our duty to love and support one another, to always took to God, the great architect, for guidance; only then can our family be strengthened.
Brethren, we should always hold ourselves to a higher standard. May our actions be a light for all others to see, may our brotherly love prevail, and may our virtues be a becon for all to see
One of my favorite quotes, by Marianne Williamson, is "As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others".
I would like to thank all of the brethren for their attendance and I encourage all brethren to attend as much as possible. I look forward to welcoming all of our visitors.
Be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitful, be courteous. 1 Peter 3:8
