Episode 073 - WM Todd Hoak and the Washington Masonic Obligation Bible


Hello!  On this episode, our guest is Worshipful Master of Ephrata Lodge No. 665, M. Todd Hoak. Recently, his lodge hosted an event featuring the bible upon which Brother George Washington took his Masonic Oaths and Obligations. It was a great event with a packed lodge room. We discuss how it came about and what it takes to plan and execute a successful event.  Past Master Moyer called in with some words of encouragement for Larry, while Jack and Josh manage avoid his gaze. Enjoy!

Episode 069 - The Episode With No Name

Hello! We're back with another episode, though not quite the one we were intending to make. Our guest was to be Brother Ed Stumm, however, Mother Nature and Larry conspired to put a stop to that! Being that the hosts were still planning to get together, it was decided that we should just sit down and record an episode. After an intense struggle, Jack was left holding both the short straw, and the burden of giving us the evening's topic. Join us as we discuss some of the changes that we are seeing in the fraternity, and how those changes are enhancing our Masonic Journey.
[00:00:00] Diving right in, but first, a special intro.
[00:22:15] First break, brought to you by the Historic Smithton Inn.
[00:23:35] Larry brings us back to talk about "What's Dumb on the Internet?!"

[00:45:55] Tim brings us back to wrap things up.
