I hope and pray this message finds you and your
family well and in good health.
In my preparation for our Fellow Craft degree with
Boiling Spring 152 on November 2, 2017 I once
again found myself enthralled with the working tools
of this degree. While I do use the tools of a Fellow
Craft almost daily, the verbiage is what always grabs
my attention. Whilst we all know the complete last
sentence of the Fellow Craft working tools, my focus
is the word “Bourne”. The American Heritage
Dictionary defines “Bourn or Bourne” as: 1- A small
stream or brook. 2- A boundary or limit. As the ritual
is written, I am sure the authors defined Bourne as a
boundary however, I would like to think that this
word could be used to describe the fluid or flowing
nature of ”Freemasonry”’ as a whole. My Brothers
each and everyone of us has drawn from the Craft
some or even many things that keep us on the path
that God intended for us.
My Brothers I leave you with a quote that I feel says
so much, be well and I will see you in Lodge.
“Learn something new. Try something different.
Convince yourself that you have no limits.“
