RMM-041: Activities in Lodge Assembled for Inspiring Lodge Work! (and Chapter XXIII TBOP)
Jan 20, 2021 Season 1 Episode 41

Join the Rocky Mountain Mason for some ideas to make your Lodge meetings more worthwhile. If Lodge meetings are boring, don't expect someone to entertain you - come to Lodge with something to say! Lodge meetings excel with preparation - and most work is done before the meeting. In such a way, the Lodge becomes vibrant and Brothers augment each other in redoubled light. 

Patrons, stay tuned for video post of the Debate at the 2016 Colorado Masonic Symposium between R.W. Bro. Kevn Townley and myself: "That there are secrets in Masonry!" (in which I had the unfortunate position of arguing against the motion... which was tremendous fun!)
