This is a short video, entitled Freemasonry – What’s It All About?
Freemasonry – What’s It All About? has recently been issued by the United Grand Lodge of England and gives an insight into why men become Freemasons, how membership enables them to grow and the pleasure they receive from their membership. It is a video for Freemasons, their families and friends: and anyone thinking about joining the fraternity.
UGLE has confronted one of the most frequently asked questions, Freemasonry – What’s It All About? with the launch of a straight talking guide to its unique organisation. The move comes on the back of the publication of the first ever independent study into Freemasonry which showed that nearly half (49%) of those questioned wanted to know more about Freemasonry, and over a quarter (26%) of male respondents would consider joining.
Freemasonry – What’s It All About? is a succinct summary of what Freemasonry actually is, clarifying its role and relevance in society today, and dispelling head on many of the commonly held myths. It highlights the importance that Freemasonry places on charitable giving, the part that many Freemasons play in their local communities, and the central role of the family. It also explains its moral and ethical approach to life – including thoughtfulness for others, kindness in the community, honesty in business, courtesy in society and fairness in all things. Freemasons are one of the largest charitable givers after the National Lottery, and also make major contributions to international disaster relief funds. Citing the many aspects of membership such as friendship, personal growth and development, the guide includes examples of people that experience Freemasonry first hand and they pleasure they receive through their membership.
