Good Evening Brethren

I am a newly initiated EA into craft Freemasonry in the UK and wish to progress my education and understanding at this my 1st degree on my journey.

Can anyone recommend any books or online reading which will be of benefit? PM’s welcome.

Hi Ian,
Greetings from London.

As a newly made EA you need to concentrate on the Degree that you have just witnessed. As a relatively new Lodge 8942 is likely to work the Emulation version of the Ceremonies and you should ask your Proposer or the Lodge Mentor if they have copies of the First Degree-only (rather than the card with the Qs) booklet for you to study. The booklet contains the Ceremony of Initiation that you have just gone through AND the Lectures of the degree that explains most of it.

You should have been given a copy of Guidance for Members of the Craft to read as well which introduces you to some of the info (rules etc) that you should know about as an English Freemason.

You might also want to join one of the English discussion Forums, the address of the best one is in my sig file :)

Ian; if you didn’t get this, then ask your secretary for it; it comes with (and is classed as part of) the Book of Constitutions (which you should have been presented with)

Thank you for your replies, I can confirm I have received copies of the books referenced.

Further guidance will be sort via my sponsor and mentor.
