WM Message

It’s a peculiar phenomenon I’m sure we’ve all experienced: pulling your car into a driveway full of freshly fallen snow, only to discover the next day, after a bit of melting, that there are fresh tire tracks in the lawn. It seems mundane and a bit annoying, but as you were mistaken about the precise location of the driveway you have pulled into thousands of times before, remember that even though you may be absolutely certain about the facts of a situation, you should be ever ready to take in more information, as you may be seeing things through a layer of snow. This is especially true of the symbols of freemasonry; even though we are at times explicitly told the meaning of a symbol, there is always something deeper and more relevant hidden beneath the surface.
I was delighted to see the number of folks who attended the January School of Instruction. Even for instruction on conducting business of the Lodge which I concede is not the most exciting thing in the world, we continue to have a large number of members who are interested in learning and assisting with the ritual. Our ritual is the core of our work and to see the amount of interest members of Ashara-Casiphia Lodge show in it is quite inspiring.

Fraternally, Tyler D. Barto, WM
