I received my 2nd degree tonight. It was everything everyone said it would be. Thus far, I have been impressed with the great care all of these gentlemen put into the degree work. This was especially true this evening. It was truly a pleasure to have been a part of it. I feel like I’m in the home stretch of my masonic journey, but there is still quite a bit of work to be done before becoming a Master Mason and then still some lecture work after that. Beyond, there is a lifetime of service, brotherly love and improvement. I feel like this is the start of something great.
