Welcome to the "King Solomon's Lodge" Blog

If you're looking for my "Quasi-Religious" blog, it has just moved to, and I apologize for any inconvenience. Since Quasi was my first "test" blog, I ran it on this domain without thinking much about it, and now the time has come to put up a blog here actually dedicated to Freemasonry.

At the time of writing this, I am a Mark Master in the York Rite of Masonry, having just been advanced to that degree two days ago (Thursday the 29th of June, 2006) at Reames Chapter #28
in Grants Pass, Oregon. I am a member of Laurel Lodge #13 Ancient Free & Accepted Masons of Oregon, where, three years ago, I was raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason (on January 29, 2003.) I am excited about the new path I have started down with the York Rite.

I'll be posting all of my most intriguing Masonic thoughts which are fit for publication on this blog, so stay tuned.

So Jeff,
I'm really intrigued by your blogs (I left a comment on the latter day gnostics blog fairly recently). I was born and raised in the church (5th generation Mormon), but had a parting of way when I got older. I find gnosticism and other esoteric spiritual disciplines very intriguing though, and have discovered there is a small undercurrent of active Mormons these days that are studying these very things.

I'm specifically wanting to ask if you were aware there is a Yahoo group entitled Mormon Mystic, that treats these very subjects. Perhaps you are already a member and I just don't know it?

Anyway, if you are not familiar with the group, I recommend at least checking it out. I suspect you would like it, and it seems to me that your input to the group would be valuable.

You can see the groups home page here.

Thanks for the positive reinforcement and for letting me know about that Yahoo! group, the image on their front page was enouch to convince me to join it. So, we shall see what comes from that association ;)

Looking forward to seeing you there. I think you'll be highly impressed w/Joe Swick, the group's founder/moderator.

Great to see your blog up! I had the opportunity to spend some time with the last incarnation of your blog and enjoyed the read.

I can't wait to see what you post on this one now.

Masonic traveler, thanks for checking out my blog. If you enjoyed my quasi-religious blog before, please don't let it escape out of your "radar", as both of my other blogs are still alive and well, I merely shuffled the url to make this one more on-topic.
