Front Porch Masonic

Your Host's Tyler and Tony take you through the world of freemasonry both inside and outside the lodge. To try to find out what Mason's and non Mason's think about the fraternity. They plan on having interesting guest both Masonic and non as well as reviews of books written about the fraternity. We hope you enjoy and welcome your feedback with how we can make the show better and more entertaining, because let's be honest neither of these two have any idea of what they are doing.

Well were back at it for the first time this year, let alone for the last several months.  Seems our ambitions that we had back in November didn't go so well.  Seems this podcasting thing isn't as easy as we thought it would be, but fear not we strive to do a better job than last year. Time will tell how this resolution plays out.

We are coming to you live from a new location. This time its Taylors home lodge of High Point #773. which meets in an Odd Fellows Lodge, more to come on this later

We had hopes of having an interview for this episode, but in a last minute decision we decided to do something different and take the listeners time into consideration and not bore you with a 2 hour long episode so we split it into 2 shows. Hope you enjoy

In this episode we find out what we have been up to the last couple months as well as how everyone in States has seem to have lost their mind on Facebook.

We have yet another book review, by another Ohio Mason. "The Craft Driven Lodge by Brother Daniel Hrinko. http://www.craftdrivenlodge.com A great read for any Mason that wants to try to put his Lodge on the Path to growth and Success.

Since this show was cut in half we will have at least 2 episodes this year both in the same month so look for the next in a week or so if we can get tony to do some work.

We tried using just one mic this time to make editing easier but sound quality is lacking a little.

We hope you enjoy the shorter episodes.  Let us know what you think

Well were back and FINALLY ON ITUNES.

Taylor has a new addition to his family and has finished his year in the east.

Tony is still secretary of his lodge but was fired from his Grand Lodge job. Maybe his lodge should pay more attention and do the same.

Grand Lodge of Oklahoma removes recognition from the Grand lodge of Arkansas because the Grand Lodge of Arkansas doesn't  like to play nice with anyone, especially Prince Hall

Freemasons and the Illuminati are planing to build a "Space Nation" in the form of the all seeing eye in a plot to rule the world.  https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/2099865/conspiracy-theorists-claim-plans-to-create-asgardia-space-nation-in-orbit-above-earth-is-secret-illuminati-plot-to-take-over-the-world/

Grand Lodge of Kentucky approves visitation with Prince Hall Masonry. 

The Grand Lodge of Ohio removes alcohol prohibition from their code, to a small degree, or maybe all the way. Were still waiting to the Grand Master to weigh in on where Tony thinks they opened the flood gates. Its coming, were sure.

No ritual is clandestine now in Ohio, what impact will this have.

Lewis candidates rejected in Ohio

Who is Tommasi Crudeli?  Tony reads a speech that was given at Grand Lodge from the Grand Lodge of Maryland.

Taylor Read a paper 'The Humble Masonic Square" by Jean-Michel David http://www.fourhares.com/freemasonry/the_square.html

Taylor reads from a section of the book 'The Lodge and the Craft' page 167 Solemn Strikes the Funeral Chime. Also Tony takes a crack at singing, its not very good. We apologize for all the ears we hurt and the dogs we made howl with that.

Well were back for another episode.  Hopefully soon well be on the major podcast sites.

In this episode we recap what has happened since the last episode.

Ohio Masons are back to Labor with their lodges.  

What little time we have to do this just became less due to lodge. such is life.but we love it and will carry on.

Tony visited The Detroit Masonic Temple in Michigan for the Ohio Michigan Degree day.  He goes over the differences between the two.  Maybe since we always see Ohio work is why it didn't impress.  Same old degree we always do.  

We talk about the troubles with the Grand Lodge of Arkansas 

Taylor reads a poem by Rudyard Kipling and a paper from a secret book.

as always you can find us on Facebook and twitter, as well as email us at frontporch357@gmail.com

hope you enjoy and have a great day brethren.

Welcome to episode 2 

This week we realize that somethings wrong because were still not on iTunes. Just something else to add to the list of things were doing wrong.

We find out the Taylor has been appointed an Ambassador for the Ohio Masonic Home and Tony decides to see what he knows.

Tony discusses a new book. 'The Pilgrims Path: One man's road to the Masonic Temple' By John J. Robinson 1993

Which talks about anti masonry and the lies they continue to profess as the truth. As well as issues within the Lodge itself.

Taylor reads a paper entitled 'Gold; Silver; Brass: Iron. Or The Four Masonic Values in the Euclid Lodge' By Rob Morris  http://phoenixmasonry.org/gold_silver_brass_iron.htm
