Recently, a special task force from the Masonic Information Center (MIC), part of the Masonic Service Association published a paper called “It’s About Time! Moving Masonry into the 21st Century” This paper is different and important. It’s the first paper I’ve read in a long time that takes a truly critical look at the problems of our fraternity without a partisan position. It dovetails nicely with the goals here at X-Oriente, so we’re going to take an in-depth look at the paper in its entirety. This will probably be a 3-part series. Aslo did you miss the Secrets of the Freemasons that aired this week on National Geographic Channel? Well you didn’t miss much.
