Great article in the April 2015 KT Magazine

I know I give the Managing Editor some ribbing (earned and unearned) but I find myself completely agreeing with his latest paper, which can be found on page 9 of this month's (April 2015) Knight Templar Magazine. The title of the paper is Masonic Philosophical Differences in the 21st Century by John Palmer. It's a definite must-read.

Seems to be the continuing contrast of a fundamentalist and a living dynamic approach to Freemasonry.

It seems to me that the Knights Templar could benefit from this kind of analysis. Frank discussion of attire, education, quality experience, etc. KT could lead by example in the ongoing struggle for Masonic renewal.

Hooray, yet another analysis about what ails the Craft! Not much to agree or disagree with. Just more analysis, nothing that hasn't already been discussed ad nauseum. No solutions proposed. Just our usual jibber jabber about out problems We need men of action, not more consultants and PowerPoints.

This is very good. Would it be worth asking my lodge's members where they believe they stand on the continuum between Neo-Antients and Neo-Moderns?

An excellent analysis. An excellent presentation of choices - Status Quo, 2 sub-sets - Neo-Moderns, and Neo-Antients. Traditional Observance Lodges continue to spring up around us. They appeal to the younger generation, and to some of us oldsters, too. They are successful, and are a solution. I for one applaud the idea. It's kind of like the Fair Tax - most criticism is from folks who haven't taken the time to really become educated about a new idea, but rather, rely on "impressions" and "feelings".
