Happy Holidays

I have always loved this time of year. It is time of family, reflection, of endings, and ultimately new beginnings. I trust you will have time for each in the coming weeks. Masonry for me provides an opportunity to consider my thoughts on many of these topics. I often use this time to reflect on the past and reset myself for the coming year and what I want my life to be. One of these reflections is often about the degrees of our Scottish Rite. For my thoughts today, it is the Chapter of the Rose Croix.

As we know, there are a number of Rose-Croix degrees, differing in a measure from each other in their work and in their teachings. However, it is said that they have their basis in Rosicrucianism.

To that end and to learn more about the Ancient and Mystic Order Rosae Crucis, join us for a visit to their Grand Lodge and Egyptian Museum. . This is one of the largest collections of Egyptian artifacts outside of Egypt and at the site is the Grand Lodge of AMORC, the Ancient and Mystical Order of the Rosicrucian. Some say they are a distant cousin of Masonry. Come and find out. The day includes a light breakfast, Tour of their extensive Reading Room, a Guided Tour of their Museum and a chance to meet their Grand Master Julie Scott. Saturday December 16th, 9:00 AM San Jose. $15 pp. Email or call (831) 521-8228 for reservations. Address of the Museum is: 1660 Park Ave, San Jose, 95191. See you there!
