This past weekend was among the busiest weekends in my recollection for Illinois Freemasonry. I joked to my cohort that "no Mason should be on his couch today for lack of activity." There were events help across the state aimed at developing the hearts and minds of our individual Brethren.
I had the pleasure of participating in the education-focused activities held near Champaign. We were able to host two Brothers from the Grand Lodge of North Carolina's Masonic Education Committee who shared their wealth of knowledge and experience with our young committee. In the coming years, I expect to look back on this meeting as a significant turning point in Masonic Education in Illinois.
