Brethren, I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well rested after the summer hiatus. This month’s message is about brotherhood. Brotherhood is more than just the memory of drunken nights and late-night parties. The true meaning of brotherhood extends well beyond that: It is about fellowship and friendship that encompass culture, tradition, and family. Those who believe in brotherhood would argue that it is the mutual understanding and support that they get from their brothers that empower them to work together. I would agree.
Never hold resentments for the person who tells you what you need to hear; count them among your truest, most caring, and valuable friends – Mike Norton
There is a destiny that makes us brothers: None goes his way alone: All that we send into the lives of others comes back onto our own. – Edwin Markham
Stay safe brothers. I hope to see many of you at lodge this month.
