Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a happier 2021

Twelve months ago none of us could have imagined we would be where we are now! You don’t need me to tell the story because we have all been there and we are all still making our way through the difficulties presented by Covid-19.

Yet, despite all the tragedies and losses and difficulties we are still experiencing, there is always hope.

Out of loss comes opportunity for learning, consolidation, new birth and growth. Crises accelerate change and we can already see the direction of travel. In the last few months members who have not attended have become re-engaged with their Lodges, communities have seen what a difference Freemasonry makes to our lives and – by extension – to theirs. Many of us – and many of our Lodges – have used the time to learn, regroup, refresh and plan for the future.

I have only left my house four times since March. Yet I have met over 5,500 brethren from all around the world on Zoom meetings for Lodges, Masonic associations, Provinces and Districts. I have used the time to research, to write and to plan as well as to speak to a much bigger audience than I could ever have imagined reaching in ten months.

Thank you to everyone receiving this email. You have supported my Masonic work by booking or attending at least one of the 76 online talks I have given in that time.

I wish you and your loved ones a merry, restful and peaceful Christmas and I wish you the very best of health and happiness for 2021, whatever it might bring.

My talks start again on 7th January and I have 29 planned for the first three months of 2021. I hope to see you sometime then.
