  1. And unless I join Mark I won't be allowed to join RAM or R&SM, but I wouldn't deny they are Masonic. Me thinks you've over interpreted the UGLE message re religion and avoiding division.
  2. If you join the Ancient and Accepted Rite, you'll understand why.
  3. Completely disagree with that view. Rose Croix being a Christian order is undoubtedly Masonic.
  4. Surprisingly, some Lodges have been doing this. It has taken a reiteration of the rules to remind Secretaries and WMs that they can't just cancel a meeting as a safeguard against infection. If there are a minimum of 5 to hold the quorum, the meeting should go ahead. No need for regalia or formalities. If there isn't, then the meeting is abandoned rather than cancelled.
  5. "you freely and voluntarily offer yourself a Can etc" doesn't seem to have been applied.
  6. So is that one, it's just a library image. As they appear on the collar.
  7. Mine certainly has it adorned to the WM's collar.
  8. Rose Croix only has the one ceremony until you attain higher degrees, but doesn't feel stifled or restricted by it. I'm not in the Mark degree, but associate with plenty that are and have never heard any critical comment about it. Conversely and behind closed doors, HRA is often referred to as the marmite degree; some like it, some don't and quite a few drop out. It's also interesting that some Districts use membership of the HRA as a requirement to gain Active Honours. Maybe this is why some don't enjoy it, as it must seem like being press ganged into something.
  9. At our Installation, the IM read out a short explanation of this jewel adorned to the WM's collar.
  10. Quite right Mike. I referred to the 2nd Degree TB for the accompaniment of the knocks at it's mention.
  11. You might want to revisit the 2nd degree Tracing Board where the G is specifically mentioned. To say it isn't recognised is incorrect. UGLE simply doesn't display it within the S&C.
  12. Nevertheless, the system is still open to abuse unless monitored and governed by an independent panel of administrators.
  13. Here, the Honours system has been based on attendance both at meetings and the FB, Offices held after the chair, ritual delivery and charitable activities/additional work for the Province. Hit all the criteria and you'll get Active rank. Don't and you will get a Past Rank. Be really not up to the mark and you'll get nothing.
  14. Senior roles? Seriously, the JW & SW roles themselves are simple. The WM Installation of his successor and obligations for candidates are simple enough if you put the time in.
