My Masonic Journey - I am still new to Freemasonry and am still an avid student. I love this Brotherhood of ours. I am neither a voice for Freemasonry nor an authority. There are far more learned of whom you should read and learn from. I am simply a Brother hoping to learn, to grow, to improve myself, and hopefully to become a better man and Mason.

The following is my current Masonic Journey:
