Here is my Christmas Confession...

Merry Christmas and a Happy Improved Year! I must begin by wishing you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas (or belated Happy Hanukkah). Particularly in this season, we hear about the importance of spending time with family and sharing on the joy of the Season. This is what leads me to the Christmas Confession... I am a workaholic! And it is particularly difficult for me to remove my working hat at times and devote my full attention to celebrations such as this. After all I am human!

Seeking the blessing of Deity

Today marks the beginning of a new journey for me, I am committed to begin a dialog regarding Masonic Education and personal development. But as we are taught early in our Masonic journey, as masons we should never begin any great undertaking, before seeking the blessing of our Creator.

No secrets will be revealed, but hopefully lessons can be unveiled with every step we take up the Winding Stairs. The Winding Stairs are meant to be a continuous journey to a higher place; a...
