Hello

Rehearsals are now taking place for my raising ceremony. It’s next week.

I wanted to share this news with you. I share later my experience. It’s really something special that I am looking forward to.

Feeling nervous. I don’t know what to expect. Maybe a mix between initiation and passing. No idea.

Working hard on my words now.

Felicitations, brother.

I’ve often thought that the initiation is the most eye-opening, the second degree has the best lessons and the third degree the most fun. I guarantee it will be nothing you expect.

Thank you Brethren. It will happen in exactly 1 week. This evening, a group of Masons is reunited in the Masonic Hall for a rehearsal. I didn’t want to go because the WM would ask me to wait outside for a “short while” :)

It will be also the first time I own my apron. In my lodge, they give a loaner for EA and FC members. Only Master Masons buy theirs.
