Saddleback Laguna No. 672 Book Club
Receiving the degrees of Masonry is just the first step in any brother's Masonic journey. As seekers of Light and Truth, and in the spirit of bettering ourselves as Freemasons, we are encouraged to continue our moral, intellectual, and spiritual growth through the reading of Masonic literature, as well as other non-Masonic literature that is aligned with Masonic teachings and values and has a clear nexus with Masonic formation.
To facilitate this ongoing quest for knowledge, Saddleback Laguna Lodge No. 672 runs a Book Club that explores Freemasonry from many different angles. Some of the readings will delve into the more speculative and esoteric topics of Freemasonry. Other readings will explore the rich history of our ancient and honorable Fraternity. Still others will show us how to apply the teachings of our Craft to our everyday lives and conduct. All readings will endeavor to make us better Masons.
There is no need to sign up for, or become a "member" of, the Book Club. To participate, a brother may simply obtain a copy of the book or other reading material, and show up at the announced meeting having done the reading and being prepared to discuss it with an open mind and brotherly love. In some instances, the number of participants may be limited depending on the venue, in which case an RSVP or event registration may be required.
While most of the readings will be restricted to Master Masons, we will on occasion cover material that is suitable for the Entered Apprentice and Fellowcraft Mason. (See the "Further Reading" section for more information on relevant and appropriate reading for these degrees.)
