Good Evening Brethren,

    Last night was my first EA Charge delivery and I hope the new candidate got out of it what I put in!! I did well so the other brothers said. I was nervous but once I got started it was like wow…I’m really doing this!!!! Now working on the FC Lecture. Really like doing the memory work!!!! Feeling relieved!!!!!!

Good Morning Brother

The first EA Charge is one of my strongest memory of the initiation. So much that I started learning it by heart. I am about halfway. It’s a lot of effort by this text is so energizing!

I am sure you will enjoy doing it again :)

Congratulations on getting your feet wet. It’s not easy standing in front of a group of men delivering a piece of work, but now that you have done it, the next time will be easier. For it to be easy, you must know the work, inside and out, backward and forward; in order for it to be presented almost automatically. Once you know the work, you can start working on the presentation. Learn all the charges and receptions. Let the Worshipful Master know that you are interested in delivering them and you will become an important asset to the lodge. Enjoy the ritualistic journey.

Hey Jay,
      I’m still working on it but it’s coming along. Lectures are much longer than the Charges!! Trying to get the coded part as well. I don’t know the typical time frame. I just been learning as I get time. Hopefully I will be done soon!!! Thanks for asking brother and Happy Easter to you and your family!
