To Be One Ask One
As Freemasons, one should always remember, "AN EDUCATED MASON IS A DEDICATED Mason." As we endeavor to educate more of our Brothers in Masonry, we will see that this is a true phrase. As they learn, they become more active and attendance increases and stronger bonds are developed between themselves. Even the most learned men learn something new each day. This keeps us interested and active. It will take work and dedication on our part, but the results will be very rewarding.
The Masonic Leadership Training Program now begins its sixth year. The program has been overwhelmingly embraced by the Craft. This started as a five year program, but in the last three years we have come a long way in mapping out its future goals. A curriculum outline has been created that provides guidelines for future training and development and is highly recommended to be followed in order not to short change any Brother in his Masonic Education. Several power point presentations have been created and made available to the leaders of this program with more in the pipeline. This Committee is extremely important to the future of our Fraternity. Please assist The Grand Lodge of Florida in leading our Brothers and Fraternity into the future.
Men enter our Fraternity seeking fellowship, knowledge, self-improvement, community involvement, and love of God and Country. As a Master Masons, this Masonic Leadership Training Program will lead you to achieve all those goals and more. Your participation in this program is earnestly recommended, as it will help you in assisting your Lodge, District, and Grand Lodge in the discharge of all the duties and responsibilities towards your fellow Masons, but more importantly, your spiritual growth in helping others will help humanity.
Masonic Education is an ongoing process whereby all Masons, throughout the world, further their knowledge about the Craft. . It begins with education for candidates about the Three Symbolic Degrees, and it continues with instruction of Masonic history, tradition, philosophy, Masonic Law, Lodge administration, and procedures in the everyday management of the Lodges.
The Masonic Education committee encourages the Lodges to use the many forms of Masonic Education lessons and publications available to them. Encourage the Brothers to learn to use the Masonic Digest, attend Schools of Instruction, become more active in Lodge functions and bring in qualified candidates. Let us encourage the Lodges to use Masonic Education materials such as Masonic History, Masonic Philosophy and Masonic Etiquette in their monthly meetings. We should endeavor, in each of our Lodges, to work toward the Masonic Education Achievement Award. Every Florida Lodge should qualify for this award.
An excellent method to learn to use the Masonic Digest and Mentors Manual is to complete the three Master Mason Examinations, now offered Online on this website. These examinations have proven very popular as they produce more friendships, more knowledge of Florida Masonry, better informed Brothers and an increase in Lodge attendance. Get together some evening and try it, you'll like it. These exams will be graded by the District Chairman of Masonic Education.
