While the Leadership post is till in the works, I wanted to update everyone about some exciting things that are going on over here at The Mason’s Lady.
First off, check out that sweet new logo at the top. Or below, I don’t judge.
This was created by my friend Dave Offord, who is super awesome! Since we all know that symbols are a big deal in Masonry, I wanted to go over each element of the logo, so you know what it means, and why I chose it. The square and compass, as I am sure you can guess, stands for Masonry overall, the main topic of this blog. The leaves on the side are acacia, an important Masonic symbol. Acacia is an evergreen that grows in the Middle East, and stands for the belief in the immortality of the soul. The lamp in the center stems from Egyptian times, where it was regarded as a symbol of life and knowledge. In Masonry it is commonly known as the lamp of knowledge, and symbolizes a reminder to peruse all knowledge. The rose, in the center of the lamp, symbolizes the heart of the blog, the women. Truly, no symbol represents the women involved in Masonry, and I felt that the rose served that purpose well.
In even bigger news, The Mason’s Lady has been featured on the Masonic podcast Whence Came You?, with R.H. Johnson. I had a wonderful time recording it, and I hope you take the time to listen to it; you can play it right from this website below.
