Today, Brethren, we are at a crossroads. The view from the west is a look retrospectively, on our lives as world citizens, as Americans, as Masons. We look over our shoulders at the good old days. Back when times were good, when our country was prosperous, when our lodge was a gathering place for people of all ages, different backgrounds, and different opinions. Those days were truly golden. When we could gather and share our views and do so respecting one another.

Times have changed. Many of us cling to our memories. The challenge before us, today, is how we can change to meet the new challenges of a new age. Many issues divide us. These issues of a world in turmoil and a people struggling to find common ground are not much different from the issues affecting our fraternity. How can we navigate these waters? Perhaps we should focus on those values which unite and not those that divide us. We can choose to set aside the issues that split us while maintaining our core values and respecting and celebrating different views and opinions of one another.

Change is never easy and almost never happens over night. We have to work at it. We can look to the basic teachings of the craft. To the words we speak at the opening, closing, and the teaching we speak of at the initiation of a new member. These words are not just words but lessons to live by. If we feel the need to look somewhere for guidance may we look to the very lessons we pass down from generation to generation from Mason to Mason.

Fraternally yours,

Buck Derrington, Senior Warden
