A Retrospective on the First Degree
During lockdown, Freemasons in our District are unable to meet physically. Virtual meetings, usually on Zoom, have become a regular feature for Carnarvon Lodge, usually hosting Zoom Quiz Nights. This time, Peter Scott of Carnarvon Lodge, gave a talk titled: A Retrospective on the First Degree.
Using PowerPoint for images, Peter discussed looking back at the First Degree, a ceremony we have all experienced, but perhaps not all of us understood fully the symbology, history and importance associated with the Degree.
The presentation was in two parts: First, preparing the candidates for the Ceremony of Initiation, and secondly, certain aspects of the ceremony itself.
The next Zoom talk will cover the next two parts: the roles of the lodge officers and a discussion about ‘what it means to be a Freemason’.
