To: Wardens, Line Officers, Worshipful Brothers, Brethren and friends of Albert Pike Lodge.
                 
         Tidings from the East


The new year brings with it the election and subsequent installation of officers, and is a time for acknowledgment and hope. The Brothers who have served before us deserve our deepest appreciation, because they have taken time and energy from their lives to apply their efforts toward the goals of Freemasonry. The friends and families of those dedicated Freemasons have witnessed their labors for the Craft and have encouraged them in their endeavors. Serving one's self only is to enter a prison of egotism and vanity. Only by giving of ourselves can we better ourselves. Only by loving can we be loved.  Such men become the symbolic mortar and stone of our Craft. They serve beyond the call of duty and set an example for those that follow in their footsteps.

 

We should do our work in the new Masonic year to stand the test of time.  We need builders -- not joiners -- and my job is to tend to the program of the Lodge so all Brothers are attracted to our meetings and given a chance to actively participate in and push forward our real objectives. We need the skill of every Brother, but don't expect perfection in a man just because he is a Mason. If you do, you will be disappointed.

 

Masonry makes men better, but no man will ever be perfect. If he is a Mason, you have a right to presume he is a good man, but don't condemn Freemasonry even if a few Masons turn out bad.  Our purpose is to take good men and make them better.  Each of us must be a working tool within our society of Brothers, which will enable us so to live so that everyone may better understand who we are and whom we serve.

 

So, my Brothers, I challenge myself each day to live the tenets of our Craft in my daily life.  My job in filling the role of Master of our Lodge is to humbly serve each of you, and every member of our Craft.

 

I am not perfect, but you have every right to expect the very best that I can selflessly give to you.  In return, I will ask the same of you -- to give of yourselves by extending brotherly love and Masonic charity to all.

 

 

Sincerely & Fraternally,

Lee Miller

Worshipful Master - Albert Pike Lodge 117
