Chaplain’s Corner

[ed. Words from the South and the Chaplain’s Corner will now be published on the web site and via email, as we have reduced the size of our Trestleboard.]

Brethren,

I hope everyone has enjoyed their precious time with family, friends, and summer fun during the past several months.

As many of us look at the glass half-full and continue to pursue happiness, we are all faced with situations that make us want to engage our Brethren for support, camaraderie, wisdom and continuous learning. On that note, we should all be impressed and thankful with the open communications that are maintained within Odenton Lodge #209, the Grand Lodge, Appendant/Concordant Bodies, and other surrounding Blue Lodges we have become very close with.

Collectively, I believe it is also very important for us all to maintain the balance of our own self knowledge, health and taking care of the distressed when needed, as we have recently witnessed. Let us all continue to thank God for the blessings and energy he has given us during the times of need and keeping ourselves circumscribed within our precepts to maintain peace and harmony throughout.

In closing, as we approach this beautiful Fall season and the holidays ahead, let us reflect in a positive manner on the subtle changes of nature, our friendships, and brotherly love. Let’s take a deep breath and remain open-minded as we transition to new activities and ensure we maintain our ongoing participation and progression of spiritual truth and knowledge.

Fraternally,
James F. Miller, Chaplain
