Some Symbolism of The Flag of the United States of America
“I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” This was the original pledge of allegiance written in 1892 by Francis Bellamy (source link 🔗). The words, “The Flag of the United States of America,” were not added until 25 years later…
Set them up and Knock Them Down, Just to Set Them up and Knock Them Down
“Wow this box has everything!” I just made a local trip to the thrift store with my Mom. When we would do that I would spend nearly the whole time in the toy section and this particular time someone had gifted a box of dominos. It wasn’t the kind of Dominos that had dots on…
MRE (Masons Ready For Esotericism?)
“Anyone want to trade for a lemon-lime beverage powder?” “I got the veggie omelet, I’ll give you that.” “Gag! You got unlucky on that one. But at least it comes with skittles.” Trading components of an M.R.E (Meal Ready to Eat) is a time-honored tradition of excellence that emboldens the army values of respect and…
Freemasonry Makes Good Men Better
The ancient values and teachings of Freemasonry are guiding principles for men in every age, including ours. Along with the companionship of other good men these principles help make us even better. Freemasonry is an ancient and steadfast anchor in a sea of change, an anchor that ties men to a firm foundation which will build them up as leaders and role models in all of their duties throughout life. All men who want to improve and make more of themselves can look to this fraternity to facilitate such growth. Learn more about Freemasonry.
Joining a Masonic Brotherhood
In Masonry you are introduced to ancient traditions of thought, which are passed down through the lectures and rituals of the order. These traditions bind even the most diverse men into tight fellowship. Masons in Utah County come from all walks of life. They live throughout the county. But every week they gladly come together at the lodge building in Provo to enjoy each others’ company and fellowship.
Freemasons Support Our Communities
Freemasonry supports the communities in which it is found as well as the people living in those communities. We commonly understand that a good man will provide good work and service to those around him, while a great man will do even more. Freemasonry builds its communities by building men, or in other words through making good men better.
Damascus Lodge #10 is building communities throughout Utah County. Our activities range from public gatherings like our Independence Day celebration in Provo, to charitable work in children’s education throughout the county.
Freemasonry Improves Your Life
Masons believe that education and learning are never complete. Education and self-improvement are every Mason’s constant endeavor. Every Mason is committed to helping each other learn how to be a better man, father, husband, brother, and citizen. Masons in Utah County meet regularly to teach each other principles of living a noble and true life.
Symbols and allegories are found everywhere in the fraternity of Freemasonry. They contain timeless, life-changing lessons about the brotherhood of man that are even more important in our contemporary world. By studying them you will gain knowledge for yourself and be prepared to pass them along to others who equally need their help.
“Freemasonry embraces the highest moral laws and will bear the test of any system of ethics or philosophy ever promulgated for the uplift of man.”BROTHER DOUGLAS MACARTHUR
