Education

The seven liberal arts & science, and history

Grammar - Rhetoric - Logic

Grammar: In linguistics, the grammar of a natural language is its set of structural constraints on speakers' or writers' composition of clauses, phrases, and words. The study of the classes of words, their inflections, and their functions and relations in the sentence. Rhetoric: aims to study the capacities of writers or speakers needed to inform, persuade, or motivate particular audiences in specific situations. Logic: 'possessed of reason, intelectual, dialectical, argumentative' is the systematic study of valid rules of inference. More broadly, logic is the analysis and appraisal of arguments.

Long before secondary education became prevalent in our country, men would attend their Lodge to learn about the seven liberal arts and sciences. Education has come a long way since then, but education is still an important part of our foundation.

 

While our members receive some Masonic education, which cannot be shared with the general public, we discovered that there are many wonderful learning opportunities based on what we teach.

 

As we expand our educational opportunities, we are excited for the two we already have in place; our Open Meeting Educational Series and MATSOL lecture series. Read below to learn more.

MATSOL

MATSOL, which stands for Masonic Awareness at the Speed of Light, is an amazing series of lectures covering a broad spectrum of Masonic topics.

Of course, we may be slightly biased because the person behind the entire series is a long-standing member of our Lodge; Worshipful Albert McClelland. Worshipful McClelland has made it his life’s work to create Masonic awareness both within and without our walls. The series is at 61 lectures and counting and is so highly thought of worldwide that they have their own dedicated section in the library of the United Grand Lodge of England; from which American Freemasonry originated. Please feel free to take a look around the videos and let us know what you think.

Open Meeting Education Series

(click title for more)

To provide an opportunity for the general public to see inside our walls, share some fellowship, and expand our collective minds, we have launched an Open Meeting Educational Series on the third Tuesday of each month. Topics vary from the arts and sciences, to subjects related to our community, and discussions about charitable opportunities in that are around us.

While subject matter experts are brought in, open discussion is highly encouraged. You can track what’s coming up next on our calendar. Beware: We do film the Meetings so that we can share them with others so if you are camera shy, please let us know in advance and we will find you a place out of frame.
