Shelton D. Redden Lodge No. 139 Officers 2014 – 2015
MESSAGE FROM THE EAST
It is with great honor and humility that I accept your nomination as Worshipful Master of the greatest lodge in the jurisdiction, Shelton D. Redden Lodge #139. We are all aware that masonry begins in the heart, and I assure you that I am intrinsically motivated to make this lodge the pride of the 4th district and a major force within the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Maryland and its Jurisdiction.
My journey to masonry began at an early age. Soon after I was able to walk, I received the honor of participating with my father’s lodge in masonic parades and attending numerous masonic events. Thanks to my father, I received a bird’s-eye view of what it takes to be a true master builder in every facet of life as I saw him provide for his family, serve his community, and perform his daily obligations in an upright manner. I intend to do my best to apply these lessons to my term as Worshipful Master.
I am aware that in order to erect a solid foundation for our temple, it will take the efforts of each brother working in concert for one common goal. I vow to solicit the input of well-informed brethren and zealously pursue our goals in the spirit of collaboration and brotherhood while emphasizing the success of the many over the agenda of the few. Lastly, and most importantly, I vow to serve the craft with honesty and truth and adhere to the teachings of our precious ritual by “judging with candor, admonishing with friendship, reprehending with justice.”
