Public Lectures

Earlier this month, I was nominated to the Chairman position of Masonic Formation Committee in my lodge. I’ll talk a little about Masonic Formation in another post, but suffice it to be defined as an initiative by my states Grand Lodge to certify members (after going to one day classes) to become formation “officers”, whose jobs it becomes to help lead key initiatives within our lodges. These initives range from mentorships, education, investigations, and so on.

Its a great idea, and I’m all about it. But what I am finding is that it is making me extremely BUSY! So with that said, I present to you, those brothers in ear shot of the lodge, our first “official” education event, with a guest lecturer, that is Free and Open to the public.

The ad here is going in a local college paper, the Daily Sundial, next week.

Details to the event, if anyone is interested in going, are:

A Journey through The Art of Rhetoric

We all know politicians and others study persuasiveness, but for the general public?
How does one “craft” an effective persuasive piece? How does one effectively “deliver” it? How relevant is understanding the art of rhetoric in today’s world? How important is it for the speaker?…for the listener?

Join us for a light seasonal buffet as Worshipful. Mark R. Sandstrom, professional Pastor and Masonic District Inspector (and former Grand Chaplain) Free and Accepted Masons of California, leads a stimulating, non-sectarian discussion covering the many facets of the art of persuasive, emotion invoking presentations

The Boulevard Masonic Center

This went out as a press release to local media yesterday too.

I will be on hand, as will my brothers, to answer any questions you may have about the lecture, Freemasonry, or anything else.

Now I need to start working on my letter for the lodge publication…
