On this episode I am reading from the lawbook on 3 of the regulations pertaining to the Membership Endowment Fund.  It is a bit longer than I want these to be but this is something that affects us all as Texas Masons.  So I felt it necessary to cover.  This is a subject that I highly recommend you read over for yourself on the law book.  Art.163b-01:07, Art. 163e-02:39 and Art 318a-05:18

We wanted to put some shorter content out this year along with our regular show.  The Oyez Podcast will cover Masonic Law.  Mostly from TX but from other Jurisdictions as well.  This episode I go over some tools I use to investigate the law and a few Grand Master decisions.  Our hope for this podcast is help illuminate how deep the Masonic Regulation rabbit hole goes.  Then hopefully you will make sure you always have your copy of our laws and regulations so you can get to the truth of the matter.  We hope you enjoy the show and as always if you have any ideas for the show hit us up at fortworth148@gmail.com or @FortWorth148 on FB

We're back! Join us as we kick off Season 4 discussing our vetting process with Brother Curtis Collier who was just raised and speaks of the process from a first hand experience.  I really enjoyed hearing his take and learned allot of ways we can tweak our process. Properly vetting candidates especially unknown ones is of more importance than it has ever been. I hope you will give the episode a go and then look for ways to sure up your Lodges vetting process.
