Looking Back for Our Future; Freemasonry in the 21st Century
Dayton Masonic Center
525 West Riverview Avenue Dayton, Ohio 45405
Friday, March 9, and Saturday, March 10, 2018
This symposium is designed to offer the participants a look at how five lodges have approached the challenges of practicing Freemasonry in the Twenty-First Century. Each of these lodges have followed a path unique to them in exploring Freemasonry, its lessons, teachings, and past practices whereby to assemble a operating paradigm which meets the needs of their members. It is our hope that all who attend will gather ideas that they find helpful to the operation of their own lodges to launch them on the path to a more enlightened and rewarding practice of Freemasonry. The goal is not to create clones but to inspire as we all learn from each other.
Qualifications for participation. Due to the nature of the material being presented, all present should be Entered Apprentice Masons. This will allow the presenters to offer materials, examples, and to address questions in a manner that can be more enlightening.
Masonic titles. We recognize that many in attendance have held various positions within the Fraternity and are entitled to various honorific titles. We recognize that these are important distinctions. However, during this symposium, all will be referred to as “Brother.”
