True Masonry – Is it Universal Masonry?

W:.Tim Bryce, PM, has contributed another article to Freemason Information on True Masonry. His analysis and observations are true in my own opinion as witnessed even between lodges in the same district.

Would a National Grand Lodge solve the problem, or is it more an educational issue in the lodges to promote and encourage a more universal stance of the fraternity. I have personally mulled the idea of a National Grand Lodge, if for any other reason to help foster the universality of the craft between other bodies. To often and in to many states “irregular” bodies (as they are called) are ignored and unrecognized simply because they have been. Time changes, and as I’ve said in other posts, if we do not evolve, we will become extinct.

Please, take a few minutes and read W:. Bryce’s piece and consider what he suggests. His suggestion at the end would be a great way to get an idea of what the fraternity means to the membership, not just what it does once a month.

  1. Just found your excellent Masonic blog. Hope you’ll check out mine (we’re even using the same blogger template) at You’ll find info on exactly what you were writing about today — a national grand lodge. It was established on St. John’s Day (Dec. 27) in 2005. Read about it on my blog.


  2. Greetings, it is great to meet other brothers across the world! I will be sure to follow your postings as well.

  3. Hmm. I actually like the lack of standardization: the fact that we can meet as brothers despite our differences reinforces the lessons of Masonry for me.
