Last night we had a first degree. We meet in the Seoul Club, but since we use a shared room, we always have to setup the lodge furnishings and pack up when we’re finished.
We keep all our furniture in a display case that’s in a corner of the room. Everything is organized in such a manner so that we always know where everything is.
I’m not sure what it is about setting up the lodge room, the idea of preparing a place where brothers can meet in peace and harmony. If I’ve had a rotten day, it usually has a calming effect. It allows me to assist in opening the lodge with a sense of humility and an open heart.
The degree went off without any hitches and afterwards we had a very nice harmony.
After regular meetings, guests who are interested in becoming Freemasons come and join us at harmony.
Congratulations to Brother Steve on his initiation!
