Masonic Musing for Week of 6/26/2017
We have a glorious body of tradition handed down to us from the past, which we owe it to transmit unimpaired to the future. But let us understand what in it is fundamental and eternal, and what is mere interpretation to make it of service to the past. Let us while we have it use it well to make it of service to the present. Yet let us fasten upon it nothing hard and fast that serves well enough to make it useful today, but may make it useless tomorrow. As the apprentice stands n the corner of the lodge, the working tools are put in his hands, and he is taught their uses. But they are not his. They are the tools of the lodge.
