The book is 295 pages in length and contains my Masonic writings from over the past three years. It offers advice on how to run a Masonic Lodge, editorials on the future direction of the fraternity, and stories aimed at entertaining Masons.
The book is dedicated to all of the Masonic Lodge officers who face the trials and tribulations of leading and governing a Lodge and to the Craft whose energy is needed to power the Lodge and perpetuate the fraternity. Sections in the book include:
CHAPTER 1 - CRAFT LODGE ADMINISTRATION
CHAPTER 2 - MANAGEMENT ISSUES
CHAPTER 3 - MASONIC COMMENTARIES
CHAPTER 4 - MEMBERSHIP
CHAPTER 5 - GRAND LODGES
CHAPTER 6 - MASONIC STORIES
CHAPTER 7 - MASONIC QUOTATIONS & POETRY
Maybe the best way to think of this body of work is as a handbook or reference manual to guide you in your journey through the fraternity. You might not agree with all of my opinions, but there is some advice and ideas you will undoubtedly find useful.
My work doesn't address our ancient heritage, which others are more capable of writing. Instead, I am addressing our present and future concerns regarding the fraternity.
Behind my work is a deep belief in the nobility of the order with an eye on our place in society. These are troubling times for the world today. True, we are not engaged in a world war as the last few generations experienced, but we are now a world community still plagued by religious extremists, terrorism, and dictatorships. It's a tinder box that could easily go up at any time. As such, I believe we need True Masonry more than ever, not just to help other Brothers but to help the world community find peace and harmony. This can only happen if we have our house in order first, which is the intent of my writings.
