The Lie says to the Truth: “It’s a marvellous day today”! The Truth looks up to the skies and sighs, for the day was really beautiful. They spend a lot of time together, ultimately arriving beside a well. The Lie tells the Truth: “The water is very nice, let’s take a bath together!” The Truth, once again suspicious, tests the water and discovers that it indeed is very nice. They undress and start bathing. Suddenly, the Lie comes out of the water, puts on the clothes of the Truth and runs away. The furious Truth comes out of the well and runs everywhere to find the Lie and to get her clothes back. The World, seeing the Truth naked, turns its gaze away, with contempt and rage.

The poor Truth returns to the well and disappears forever, hiding therein, its shame. Since then, the Lie travels around the world, dressed as the Truth, satisfying the needs of society, because, the World, in any case, harbours no wish at all to meet the naked Truth.

Welcome back from WM Jeffrey Johnston http://mightypeacedistrict.com/northland147/2018/09/19/welcome-back-from-wm-jeffrey-johnston/ Wed, 19 Sep 2018 16:54:07 +0000 http://mightypeacedistrict.com/northland147/?p=98 Continue reading Welcome back from WM Jeffrey Johnston]]> Brethren,
As our new masonic year gets underway I am very much looking forward to seeing you all in lodge again. I am proud and honoured to serve as Worshipful Master this year, and look forward to leading Northland #147 with the help of each and every one of you. We have an exciting year ahead of us, starting off with a bang with the District 100th anniversary on Sept 29th. I am excited to dive into another year of Masonry.
During my tenure as worshipful master this year, I hope to encourage more fraternal relations outside of our regular lodge meetings. We discussed this before the summer break began, and I hope to continue the discussion and encourage everyone to come to lodge with suggestions for possible events. In addition I will work hard with the line of officers to ensure that we have fun and instructive meetings each month. In short I hope to increase our fellowship both within and without the lodge.
I would like to thank all the officers who served last year, particularly those who stepped down for their service through the years, and those who stepped up in the line for there efforts so far and the courage to continue serving. Special thanks goes out to Steve Johnson who served as Secretary of our lodge since rocks were soft, and Don Chilcote who has served as our Director of ceremonies for a number of years as well. Both have opted to take smaller roles in Lodge, though I know they will remain useful resources for Masonic instruction.
I am excited to welcome you all back from summer’s break, and I hope you all had a productive and restful time.
