After years of research and deliberation, I was initiated as an EA last night.

Thanks to members of this forum (and other masons), I avoided anything about rituals and secrets, and I can’t thank you enough. My initiation wouldn’t have had the impact that it had if I had known what was going to happen in advance. Thank you, gentlemen!

Congratulations! I was initiated last month so know what you mean about the impact it had. Like you, I avoided reading anything about ritual so going in had no idea what to expect.

Thank you for the kind words. After my initiation, I was immediately treated like a brother and an equal. I love my lodge.
