Greetings Brethren,
We are in need of Golf Participants / Hole Sponsors / Donations. We only have about 4 teams that are solid in taking part. Remember, this is YOUR Golf Tournament as a Scottish Rite Member.
This is all about supporting The West Tennessee Scottish Rite Childhood Language Disorder Program.
The MEMPHIS SCOTTISH RITE is solely responsible for funding this program.
WITHOUT each members' help, it is all for naught.
PLEASE help in assisting YOUR SCOTTISH RITES' CHARITY.
PLEASE HELP US HELP THE CHILDREN.
Thanks and may God bless us all .
I have room for 5 people in my vehicle for the July 6th meeting in Huntington. We will meet at the I-40 gas station exit 25 (Arlington exit South side) at 3 pm. Please post on here if you're needing to ride with me so we don't have more than 5 showing up.
Are you going to the Scottish Rite tomorrow night? I know I am!
Make sure to visit and like Grand Commander Jim Cole's page and enjoy words of wisdom and advice from the House of the Temple.
May's Stated Meeting will present a portion of the 20th Degree for education. If you have never seen it, or it's been a long time, be sure to come out on May 4th.

Dinner is at 6pm. Don't forget to RSVP for dinner by calling the Memphis Scottish Rite at (731) 432-6338 or email [email protected].
Welcome to all the new Scottish Rite Brothers.
Brother Ben Franklin said that the only thing more expensive than education is ignorance. In tradition of the timeless pursuit of Masons towards higher knowledge, the Nashville Valley Scottish Rite and KSA host the Master Craftsman Study Club every 1st and 3rd Wednesday from 6pm-7pm.

Join us this Wednesday on April 21st, we look forward to coming together and uncovering more truths as we study the Scottish Rite Ritual and Monitor Guide together.

The meetings are currently held on Zoom. Please visit www.NashvilleKSA.com where you will find a link to join the zoom call, or join manually with room ID: 702 376 0626. We will see you this Wednesday at 6pm!

Please email [email protected] if you have any questions.

Thank you
To those who respected, loved, and remember well MWPGM Paul L. Phillips. Illustrious Brother Bill McDaniel, Past Wise Master of The Memphis Scottish Rite Chapter of Rose Croix, will be honoring his memory by attending St. John #332 Stated Meeting Monday Evening and presenting his 33° Hat to be placed in the Lodge Archives as a fitting memorial to his dedication and service to The Scottish Rite. Please support Brother Bill McDaniel and the members of St. John #332 as they remember MWPGM Paul L. Phillips.
I want to invite everyone to join us for an exciting and informative Virtual Seminar hosted by the Scottish Rite and presented by Tennessee Mason Karak Arnett TODAY April 7th at 6pm CST.

For over 3,000 years ancient Mayan culture was the source of numerous spiritual philosophies and ideas that are still spoken of today in popular study. Take some time next month and learn where these philosophies come from, how they impact us, and what surprising correlation they have to modern Freemasonry.

This is a 100% online event being held on Zoom so you can tune in from the comfort of your own home, it is also a public session so feel free to invite anyone inside or outside the fraternity who you think may be interested as we make it our goal to spread more light to all ears willing to learn.

Please go to www.NashvilleKSA.com/ZoomSeminar
Without revealing anything that should not be improperly known, what is your favorite Scottish Rite Degree and why? For me, it is the 20th degree because the teachings led me to learn and understand Tolerance. The Degree taught me to stop looking at how we differ from one another and start looking for how we are similar. Our similarities give us cause to work together for a common goal and in doing so we find understanding for one another and great friendships are developed.
Our Stated Meeting will be tomorrow, Tuesday, April 6th. Meal at 6 p.m. and meeting thereafter. Come out and enjoy the fellowship. Please remember to make your reservations for the meal if you plan to attend.

Often mistaken among the Craft for an icon Norman Rockwell image, the illustration “A Labor of Love” by Sam Brown, which graced the cover of the August 1927 edition of Masonic News, is one of the most iconic Masonic images of its time. It symbolizes a Brother’s dedication to and pride in the Craft and, like Freemasonry itself, is full of often ignored or overlooked imagery.

The lantern that the square and compasses are being painted on, while practical for the time for providing light inside or outside the lodge, also represents the metaphorical light often sought by Masons. The application of Brotherly Love is shown by the ever interested and approving brother looking over his shoulder – an obviously life-long friend.

The work itself should not be overlooked. Brothers often take on projects within the lodge – to provide beautification or as a means of instruction. This is emblematical of the industry or industriousness, we are taught to admire. The fact that it is two elder Brothers, demonstrates that Masonry is a life-long process and that with age often comes wisdom, but also a never-ending desire to be useful.

Easily unobserved is the crate upon which the Brother sits. Examining closely, we find the word “Collect” penned on the side. This alludes to charity. Not only is the Brother resting upon charity, but his work is a form of charity itself. Charity, as denoted by the three principal rungs of Jacob’s Ladder, is often referred to by its more biblical Greek form Agape – or Love. Hence making this illustration a true labor of love.

170 years ago today, Andrew Johnson became a Freemason when he received the Degree of Entered Apprentice in Greenville Lodge No. 119, in Greenville, Tennessee.

Johnson was also a Royal Arch Mason, Knight Templar and Scottish Rite Mason.

Johnson died July 31, 1875. He was given full Masonic honors at his funeral in downtown Greeneville, and his body was escorted to its final resting place by Knights Templar in full uniform.

Many of you in the Valley of Memphis know our brother from Arkansas. An Honorary member of our Valley. He was a friend, a great Man and Mason.

Ill. Hershell Leon Wright, Jr., 33°
Sept 16, 1940 ~ Sept 8, 2020 (AGE 79)

Brethren, it is my sad duty to inform you that Illustrious Hershell Leon Wright, Jr., 33°, a faithful and stalwart member of the Valley of Jonesboro, died this afternoon around 1:00 pm after a short illness.

Brother Hershell was made a 32° Scottish Rite Mason on February 27, 1987 in West Memphis. He was elected to the rank and decoration of Knight Commander of the Court of Honor on October 21, 1991. He was coroneted a 33° Scottish Rite Mason on December 4, 1999.

Brother Hershell has been the Director of Work for the Eastern Arkansas Scottish Rite Bodies for several decades and successfully transitioned the degree work from a "stage" environment to work in a blue lodge hall. With Brother Hershell adding new smoke and magic nearly every time, it was truly a wonder to behold.

There will be no Masonic Service and the family has planned a private ceremony at this time. Please be in prayer for his family.

[08/25/20]   Brothers,

The Scottish Rite will be having its first Stated meeting of the Fall on Tuesday, September 1st. There will NOT be a meal. The executive board will meet at 6:30 and the regular Stated meeting will begin at 7. Your temperature will be checked upon entering the front door. We ask that you wear a mask and to spread out in our auditorium to observe the social distancing guidelines recommended. We look forward to seeing everyone.

[06/01/20]   The Scottish Rite will not have a stated meeting this month. We are hoping that if the reopening of businesses continue we will be able to host our annual St. John's night observance for area blue lodges on Wed. June 24. We hope to see everyone real soon.

[04/25/20]   The Memphis Scottish Rite, in compliance with guidelines set by the Mayor of the City of Memphis, will not have a stated meeting in May. We hope that if restrictions are lifted by June we will be able to have a meeting. We normally do not have a meeting in June but we would like to create an opportunity for the Brethern to gather and visit before we go dark. Stay Safe. Be kind. Practice Masonry.

[03/23/20]   The Scottish Rite will not be having the April Stated Meeting nor the Light Ceremony in accordance with the order of MWGM Robert Reed and in compliance with directives from the Governor of the State of Tennessee. The office is operating the best it can while observing social distancing. We are checking the mail everyday, processing your dues and maintaining the building but the front door is locked. Many tasks are being conducted electronically from home. If you have essential business to conduct please call us @ (901) 526-7679 or email us at [email protected] to arrange an appointment.
