Brethren, in Freemasonry we are taught to always invoke the aid of deity before entering upon on important or great undertaking, so I say “Take delight in the LORD and he will give you the desire of your heart! “
I am truly humbled by the opportunity to serve you in the position of Worshipful Master of Enterprise Lodge #3. I do not take this responsibility for granted that you have entrusted to me. Servanthood is one of the biggest duties of this office and I realize that I can’t do it alone without your support. While I may stand in the East as one, I realize that the success of the lodge is in your hands and hearts. I intend to solicit your ideas, feedback and even your opposition to keep harmony in our institution. I will look to the Past Masters for wise counsel, wisdom, guidance, knowledge and expertise of all our Master Masons. You will have a collective voice in the direction of our lodge.
Our widows/orphans, brotherhood and community service will be major priorities in this masonic year. This will give us a sense of compassion and humility towards those in need of care and also provide the opportunity to make an impact on mankind. I pray that you will be willing to embark upon these priorities with me. Growing our lodge with more good brothers to move our vision forward will always be a driving force. This will require the support of all of us as we seek those worthy to accept the rules and regulations of our fraternity.
I am happy to express my excitement for what God will do through this lodge. I pray the strength of us all and I hope that we will stay humble and open for change. May the favor, peace and blessings from God be upon each of us.
