Message from the Grand Master

Freemason Thin Blue LineBrethren it is with a heavy heart that I write this message today. Brethren
our law enforcement officers are being killed and under attack and there is
no out cry from our leaders.

I am asking that the Mason’s of Mississippi show the public that we are good
men, by showing public support for our local law enforcement. And be in
prayer for our men and women in blue.

-Edward Rhodes, GM

Grand Master Message

anchorHail Friends,

What a honor for me to serve the Grand Lodge of the Great State of Mississippi for 2017 and to represent you for a short time. I will strive to give 100% of my abilities for this purpose.

My motto for this year is “Anchored in Masonry” and I hope you will join me in this endeavor.
Mr. Webster describes an anchor as something that serves to hold an object firmly. I believe that it is time for Mississippi Masons to hold firmly to our teachings and customs.

I asked that you pray for me as I will for each of you. Pray for yourself each day that you will become a better person. Each of us are the best Mason that someone knows. Will that person want to be like you or will they shy away from masonry.

As we prepare for our 200th year next year may we all give positive publicity of Masonry and let the world know that Masonry is alive and well in Mississippi.

Thanks for all the encouragements, thought and prayers that you have supported me with. I look forward to seeing as many of you as I can in the coming year.

Until then I remain
Anchored in Masonry
