Invited to do my 2nd !

Recommended Posts

Great news. Enjoy it, the second degree is too often seen as a 'stepping stone' by a Lodge and not given the credence it deserves. The degree has an important message and the long version of the second tools have a particular poignancy. The 2nd Tracing Board is also a fascinating piece of ritual, both to listen to and deliver.

The 2nd is the shortest of the three ceremonies, but I believe the teachings of the 2nd Degree tools are the absolute foundation of what Freemasonry should be about. If you only ever learn one thing in Freemasonry, learn the "long version" of the 2nd Degree tools. It will stand in you in good stead for the rest of your Masonic career, but also for life.

Good luck with for the evening.

Tony.

He's only a FC according to his post footer so if like my Lodge, we don't give ritual books out until you've completed all 3 degrees. Having said that, it is freely available on an internet search.

Well thats 1 more step of the journey :) really enjoyed the ceremony found myself being able to relax much more in this one and it definitely filled in some gaps from the 1st. Nailed my Q&A's word perfect and a cracking meal followed. Can't wait for my 3rd !

I'm not sure that would be appropriate on an open forum. Perhaps someone can pm it to you instead.

It's a good starting point. There are many errors to the various degrees aswell.


Hmmm I don't see the point of learning something that is incorrect!!!!
