So what do I think I should be doing as Lodge Mentor. Mediator? Educator? Retainer, Friend and someone who is there when you need to talk?
So what would you say my role is?
Yes my role is to assist new Brethren as they make their early way in Freemasonry, but at the same time we have to remember to try to keep the rest of the Brethren happy. By that I mean what is the use of keeping the new members keen but forgetting the older brethren who are just as important for the lodge to thrive.
How many ceremonies have we attended during our Masonic careers?
Now how many lectures have we attended during the same time?
It is surprising the amount of Brethren who are unaware of the reasons we do what we do in the Lodge. And one of my objectives whilst Mentor of the Lodge is to try to make our time in Freemasonry more informative , after all we are all mentors to a point so really we should be able to tell non Freemasons when showing an interest in joining us why we do what we do and where we came from.
What we have to remember is that we are all Mentors; we look after our own candidates to a point. The Lodge Mentor is just there to assist when needed.
If you feel we should be doing something more in the Lodge then say so, we are very lucky in Pendle Lodge to have a very strong bond and at the moment a team of Brothers willing to organise events and make a very good job of carrying out what they say they will do. All these events so far have had visitors from other Lodges saying what a good time they had, so let’s do more, this is another way of promoting Pendle Lodge and encouraging people to join us in Freemasonry.
Thank you for your support
