A Friday Thought . . .

by Midnight Freemasons Founder
Todd E. Creason, 33°

I ran across this stunning image a couple weeks ago somewhere on social media.  I couldn't have said it any better myself . . . in fact, I HAVE said this a few times on here, but not as well.  Like it or not, when we represent ourselves as Freemasons, we represent the entire Fraternity. 

I used to say that Freemasonry's best advertising was its members.  In the social media age, I think that's working against us at times.  Let's remember who we are and what we represent when we interact with the world . . . and try to remember that when we represent ourselves as Freemasons to the world with a ring, a hat, a bumper sticker, or most especially on social media-- each of us represents ALL of us.

Social media has made the world a much smaller place.  Always remember for better or worse, you're somebody's impression of Freemasonry.  Just like the sign says.
