Why did Matt become a Freemason?
I joined the Freemasons for a few reasons. I like retro things, and not just because I dig fezzes and bling, but I like to keep worthwhile things alive. I was also looking to incorporate more traditions in my life, find more good friends, plus I’ve got a few severe character flaws that I need to work on, and Masonry has already made me a much better man.
Thoughts about Braden 168?
Braden is, in short, exactly what I always wanted, but never thought, a Masonic lodge to be like. A group of guys my age who are interested in discussion, philosophy, friendship, and putting ritual into their lives.
