Brethren,

It is that time of the year when we must acknowledge all that is important in our lives. We must strive to truly meditate on the positive things that surround us.  There are many around us. We simply need to look. We masons are a resilient and loving bunch, even when we stray from the true teachings of our beloved craft. We have been and are still plagued with the challenges placed in our paths by the GAOTU, especially in the last 2 years. We have lost loved ones; we have seen suffering and human tragedy and, of course, the rage of mother nature. Every time we see the news, we jointly pray in silence for our brethren and their loved ones that have been touched by the unfolding events in Canada and around the world. My brethren, our morals and brotherly love must remain strong and in check. The unfinished difficult work of being better and becoming better must continue……
