FOUNTAIN VALLEY LODGE #191
October 2011 Trestleboard
is almost upon us. I hope all of our brothers have enjoyed the first month after
being “dark”. Joe Rodriguez was made
an Entered Apprentice and Mitchell Liming will join him as an EA on October 11th.
Congratulations to WB C.T. Elliott and
his wife Margret in being installed as Worthy Patron and Worthy Matron in our
chapter of Eastern Star.
October is move up one chair month.
Officers, be sure you know your parts.
The plumb is a symbol of uprightness of conduct. In Freemasonry it is
associated with the plumb line which the Lord promised Amos he would set in the
midst of His people,
, symbolizing God’s standard of divine righteousness. The plumb line in the
midst of a people should mean that they will be judged by their own sense of
right and wrong, and not by the standards of others. By understanding the plumb,
a Mason is to judge his Brothers by their own standards and not those of someone
else. When the plumb line is thought of this way, it becomes a symbol of an
upright life and of the conscience by which each person must live. This ideal is
closely tied to the concept of justice. For, in truth, Justice is giving another
man his due.
