I have devised a rapid way of opening a Lodge for a new Lodge that would like to meet at 18:30H and be sitting down to dine at 19:30H. This is just the opening. There would be a much shorter ritual all the way through.
WM: Brn, assist me to open the Lodge. Bro [name], is the Lodge properly tyled and are all within the Lodge known by you to be Freemasons? JW: To order Brn. Bro [name], the Lodge is properly tyled and all within the Lodge are Freemasons. WM: Bro [name], are all officers of the Lodge in their correct positions and are they aware of their traditional duties? SW: They are, WM. WM: Then, brethren, the Lodge being duly formed, before I declare it open, Chaplain: Let us invoke the assistance of the Great Architect of the Universe in all our undertakings; may our labours, thus begun in order, be conducted in peace, and closed in harmony. All: So mote it be. WM: Brethren, in the name of the GAOTU, I declare the Lodge duly open (all cut Sign) for the purposes of Freemasonry in the First Degree. Gavels, columns, bible, TBs, knocks.

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.
