I am pleased to say that my Passing to the Second Degree takes place next Thurs. It will be almost 13 months exactly since my Initiation into Freemasonry under the United Grand Lodge of England, and a fine experience it is proving to be.
Only another year to my Raising so I've been told, lots of time to learn.....
Bro Midlander. I wish you well for your Second Degree and hope you have a good Ceremony and Tracing Board. If performed well I feel that the Passing is one of the nicest Degrees in Craft and has important messages to impart. Too many Lodges rush a Candidate through at successive Meetings and the Second Degree is looked upon as no more than a way-station towards becoming a Master Mason. In your case it would appear that your Lodge has the right time intervals, a year between the Degrees.
I will think about you next Thursday and raise my glass at 9.00 pm.

omni: In my Lodge the Secretary is a hugh bully along with control issues. if anyone even asks a question he files masonic charges against them. He controls members mostly because they are afraid of him.

The Ancient: To omni: Grow some balls, that lodge is yours as well as every member in that lodge. If you are right, its not your problem. Nobody likes the ugliness of masonic charges. Light will always illuminate darkness, don't be afraid, be a better man.
