  1. IanMy decision to get you ilvenvod in Freemasonry was a simple one. The timing when to ask you was far more difficult. I had no hesitation that you would fit into the fraternity and be welcomed by the brethren, what with you attending many ladies evenings and social events, you already knew many of the guys anyway. Committing to the time and financial requirements is always far more difficult to manage and getting it right for you was always a challenge, and even now, with you away on business we will have to manage the ceremonies of the lodge to fit in with some of your away visits.I’m really pleased you agreed to join us and I know you have the full support and blessing of your wife Lynette, who is always more than keen to attend our Ladies Evenings and social nights.As for the hard work displayed at your recent ceremony, there will come a time when you are required to be ilvenvod with a similar performance, don’t worry, it wont be for a while yet.For you, the plan is to ensure you have a rewarding and educational journey up to the point of Master Mason, and you will find that small steps are far easier and more interesting to take than rushing headlong into something new. If there is anything you don’t understand or have a question of then please ask any of your fellow brethren. If the answer is beyond your current position they will say so, but they will also give you their answer to any question you have. It is their answer, and I suggest you take it on board and even ask the same question of other brethren, until you have your answer. Question everything you do, and come up with a conclusion that is right for you. Freemasonry is a personal journey, its just we are all on the same path heading in roughly the same general direction.As for the Installation this Thursday. It’s the high-lite of our masonic year and a very important meeting. Enjoy the part you have to play, it is likely to be the only time you perform this role, it has been done many times before by many of the brethren before you.As for this diary exercise, I’m pleased you agreed to take part in it and commit the time to writing your thoughts and experiences down for us all to learn from. You never know, it could be the start of something new.Enjoy yourself Ian
