More light!   A Freemason's Blog

The Beginning

by Scott Garan on 05/10/13

I have been a Freemason for 8 years now, and have served as both Master of W.K. Ricksecker Masonic Lodge in Aurora, Ohio and am also starting the officer's line in the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite, Valley of Canton's Rose Croix Line.   

This page has been created to share the light in Masonry that has been so important in my life.   When I first joined Masonry, it was truly because I was looking for something else in life!   You see, I was a cop.   I worked as a cop and was viewed as the cop that lived up the street.   My side job was teaching at the police academy, where I taught others how to be a cop.   It was not that I did not like this role in my life, but that I suddenly realized that there must be something more to life.   I mean, everyone I associated with was a cop!   So, I began thinking about ways to interact with others!   While on patrol, I stumbled into some men that had just finished their masonic meeting, and I had the opportunity to talk with them.   It was then that I realized that this organization may just be the thing I need.

You see, Freemasons embodied everything that was important to me.   It was a group of men that shared a common bond.   They believed in a power greater than themselves, but also shared in the comraderie that was so important to me.   They also believed in the basic foundations of what has made this country great, which are those freedoms we all seem to take for granted.

When I joined, I was accepted as a brother.   These men have been there for me through thick and thin, just as I have tried to do for them!   Because of this bond, we support one another, and share in each others triumphs as well as defeats.   What never changes, however, is the love we share for our core values and each other. These values have kept us strong for decades, if not longer.

My friends, if you have found this page, you are on your own journey to make something better in your life.   For some, it me be the quest to find out more about this mysterious thing called Freemasonry.   It may be a search to find other men that believe in something more than just the importance of making money.   For others, it me be a desire to find out details on a local circus we sponsor, so you can share it with your family.   The common theme, however, is that we all believe in the importance of family, brotherly love, and something that seems to have been becoming more and more scarce these days, a reason to live for something greater than ourselves.   A purpose!

Sharing life's experiences with one another is something that cannot be overlooked.   It is what connects each of us in one way or another.   We may have different beliefs about many things, but in the end we are all human.   I invite each of you to share your stories on this blog.   The good, the bad and the ugly.

After all, we are all brothers, and sisters!
