Bellevue Lodge No. 325 held a well-attended Valentine’s Day Dinner with members and their families.
The Grand Lodge of Nebraska’s Annual Communication was only a few short weeks ago, but the Education Committee is already implementing one of its objectives for the coming year: putting a Masonic Education bookstore online!
There you’ll find many of the books that have been reviewed by Education Committee members in recent years, plus many more that have been recommended by your brethren. There’s something for everyone. Those just beginning their journey might be interested in the guilty-pleasure, “Freemasonry for Dummies,” while those further down the path may prefer “The Cave and the Light,” a fascinating history of the two greatest philosophers of the western world – Plato and Socrates.
For those brethren looking for something more adventurous, there are works of fiction, to include “The Lost Symbol” and “Crown of Serpents.” Anyone not averse to a little speculation (and what Speculative Mason is?) might enjoy the “The Rosslyn Hoax,” “The Masonic Myth,” and “Solomon’s Builders.” There are literally dozens of books included on the new books site, accompanied by helpful descriptions.
Importantly, the purchase of books from the GL website actually benefits Nebraska Masons because they are linked to the GL affiliate account. The price of the books remain unchanged, of course, but a small percentage of all sales goes directly back to the Grand Lodge to support our many Masonic endeavors and causes.
Just go to the Grand Lodge website (www.glne.org) and click on the Book Store button!
