Continuing the tradition of quality, we move to a new contemporary and simplified model! Designed by our good friend and Brother, Jason Richards and manufactured by Edgar Alejandro of Masonic Revival, this pin stays true to the idea of elegance and mystery. Keeping the original triad shape for Deity, the working tools, acacia leaves and the all seeing eye, the pin is unmistakable as Masonic. We border the pin in red as a tribute to the higher degrees and the search for more light. Finally the words, "Whence Came You?" are right there front and center. Again the hard-fired colored enamel and a strong e-clasp for the pin back are what make this one outstanding. All sales will be used to help us meet our funding goals which will allow us to bring you more Masonic content! - $10 + $3.50 Shipping
Initially published in 1909, spanning three editions, Max Heindel’s Ancient and Modern Initiation is a roadmap that leads to the Inner-Christ. With stops along the way, Heindel describes in simple details the symbology of the words used in the Holy Scriptures and lays bare for the reader the secrets to Christian Mystic Initiation. Few works will connect the reader to the mystical process explained herein and to Max Heindel himself. This Special Edition is complete with a short biography on Max Heindel, as well as an epilogue that will make you understand the man behind the work.
Heindel’s transformative work, embellished with care and diligence by the always-to-the-point Robert H. Johnson, makes this version of Ancient and Modern Initiation the one to read. Johnson’s work into the history of Heindel himself adds poignancy to the life and work of this famed Christian Mystic. Whereas it was already a must-have for those interested in the concepts of Initiation and Self-Actualization, Johnson’s edition of this text is a better and more timely carrier of the universal message to humanity.

The Master's Word is a gem from the 20th century, cherished by those who know it. Initially published in 1913, its concepts are still very much discussed in countless philosophic and esoteric circles. Jon T. Ruark and Robert H. Johnson have set a new standard in literature review. This book has been completely reformatted and footnoted--adding context where it matters, meaning where antiquated words are used, and offering two completely new essays in the form of a Prologue and Epilogue. This new printing is a must-have for fans of Plummer's original work and the Masonic and Rosicrucian student.
“Johnson and Ruark do a tremendous job in their insightful curation of this largely forgotten volume by George Plummer, who is more widely known for his later, strictly Rosicrucian output. Throughout the work, Plummer takes a mystical perspective on science and philosophy from ‘the priests of ancient Mizraim’ to the New Thought movement in his own era. Thanks to Johnson and Ruark for resurrecting this old gem!”

Few books on the craft today offer logistical assistance on the operational lodge or its active officers. It’s Business Time aims to offer a fresh look at the best practices that the world of business has spawned over the last hundred years and to take these market-disrupting techniques and adapt them for use at the Lodge level. Just because Freemasonry isn't inherently a business doesn’t mean the organization can’t benefit from industry-proven best organizational practices. It's Business Time lays out these modern concepts, and their relevance to Freemasonry in an easy-to-understand guide. The work explores and adapts each concept for use across the organization, regardless of leadership level. If utilized appropriately, these concepts can be a powerful force multiplier in enabling Lodges to succeed in the modern era.
"As someone with an MBA, I have long studied some of the best business practices and how to use these in organizations that I have been associated with. Brothers Johnson and Ruark have assembled some of the most innovative approaches used by successful companies and have illustrated how to adopt these for use in Freemasonry. This book is not about making Freemasonry a business, but rather applying these principals in building a successful lodge. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for new and innovative ideas."

In 2019 I contacted Chris Hodapp about putting Laudable Pursuit on Audible. He was immediately on board. It was personal because myself along with 20 other men used this book as a means to start a new lodge. And we were successful. As part of a tribute to Chris and the Knights of the North, we completed this audio version of Laudable Pursuit--it gave so much to us, and we wanted to give back. With Chris narrating along side other members of our lodge (myself included) we offer this audio version. All proceeds will be donated back to the Indiana Masonic Library and Museum. We have some original music we wrote and played for the intro and outdo as well. We hope this book continues to bring even more light to our Brothers for years to come. Clicking the image will take you to Audible where you can purchase the book for 6.95 or get it free with a trial. Many thanks to all who grab up this title. Please remember to rate it!
This pin was fun, But it's now SOLD OUT! Stay tuned for another fun design in the near future.
I inquired on a number of Facebook Groups comprised of Freemasons, a question. That question was a generality and is NOT hard data, but is still relevant. The question? "Which statement best fits your perception of lodge attendance?" After compiling the results from all of the places that I polled, we have a number that represents what percentage of our membership are attending our meetings. You guessed it, about 15%.
In the spirit of change, and the fervor of the political season, I offer you some flair. A campaign button--"Goin' to lodge" is for the 15%'ers.
So what say you? Are you a 15%'er? These buttons are free! But you can only get it if I see you in lodge, and you have to ask for it. Only 50 will be made in the initial run.
