I  am excited to welcome you all back from the summer break.  I hope everyone enjoyed themselves!

Please take a little time to review your parts, if you have any.  Now is also a good time to look forward to next year and the parts you will be performing then.  Feel free to reach out to me or to any well-informed brother if you should need assistance.

Fraternally,

What is a plumb line? It is a tool made of a cord with a heavy weight attached to the end. It is used by masons to test the perpendicularity of any vertical construct. The plumb line and the structure must be parallel, or it is not true.

Why did God say, I will set a plumb line in the midst of my people Israel? Because the plumb admonishes us to walk uprightly in our several stations before God and man.

For the speculative mason, this means that we must always be in accord with what is true. This is so even when we are in the sight of our friends, or in the sight of no other people at all, which would mean we are solely in the view of the Divine Architect.

Adam Smith, the author of the Wealth of Nations, as well as The Theory of Moral Sentiments tells us that man desires “to be loved and to be lovely.” This means that not only does man require the respect and friendship of his comrades, he also desires to be worthy of that love, respect, and companionship. Every day in Masonry, we should ask ourselves if we are worthy of such a thing and if not, which is often the case, how we can improve to be so? This is core to Freemasonry.

John Krikorian
Junior Warden

What a pleasure it was to see and meet new Brethren and receive more Light in Masonry. I’d like to give a special thanks to all those who assisted in the assembly of the NMLC. Mt. Moriah proficiency work is second to none; it is an education piece in itself. If you ever have an available Wednesday and we are doing proficiency work, I encourage you to attend. I’d also like to thank Worshipful Brother Chuck Barone, Most Worshipful Mike Hoaglin, and Worshipful Brother Eric Holder on their education workshops. All 3 left you yearning for “More Light”. If you like esoteric Masonic discussions, you should attend our education workshops.

Earnestly
Dennis Ashley,
Worshipful Master

On looking at what the Master has planned over the next few months, I am excited at the amount of education in the schedule.  This has been a great year for it so far.  I would like to encourage all Brothers to try to take the time to attend the lectures.  The work that goes into them is extensive, and I feel that they truly delve into what it means to be a Mason.  Come and Enjoy them!

Fraternally,
Eric Willson

I was glad to see that everyone enjoyed the family dinner last month. I was afraid that we would have leftover food, but everything seemed to go!

Your principle officers will be making a pilgrimage to Northern Nevada in June for the Nevada Masonic Leadership Conference in Reno. We hope the Brothers that attended in Las Vegas fond it a useful experience and a great time.

As the summer is nearly upon us, I hope each of you has an enjoyable and healthy break.

Fraternally,
John Krikorian
