Every month since 1923 the Masonic Service Association has published The Short Talk Bulletin, which was to be an informative, chatty discussion of some aspect of Freemasonry: symbols, allegories, history, individuals, etc.. They are sent to all Lodges of the constituent Grand Lodges, and are intended to be read in all Lodges. Here, we are bringing all of these jewels of Masonic Light to life, so that Masonic Education may happen wherever Brothers are.
 

Personal Masonic Philosophy

 
This Short Talk Bulletin Podcast episode is from the golden pen of MW Bro Carl H. Claudy, and was first published in July of 1945. “Philosophy” is a word with almost as many meanings as there are men to use it. Here we find an excellent discussion about the why and how of developing a Personal Masonic Philosophy for one’s self, which is perhaps the most important task in the building of our house not made with hands. Enjoy, and do share this and all of these podcast episodes with your Lodge and your Brothers.

Clarity In Freemasonry

This Short Talk Bulletin Podcast episode is from August of 2020, and was written and is brought to us by MW Bro Stephen Oakley, current Grand Master of Masons in Illinois. Here we find an excellent discussion about how certain memories become clearer and more meaningful over time. This is followed by a Short Short Talk, The Tides, taken from the Short Talk Bulletin from November of 1967. Enjoy, and do share this and all of these Podcast episodes with your brothers and your Lodge.

The Altar Of Obligation

This Short Talk Bulletin Podcast episode is from the golden pen of MW Bro Carl H. Claudy, and was first published in October of 1945. Here we find an excellent discussion about that which is the very heart and core of Freemasonry, and from whose gentle light the spirit of brotherhood is born. Enjoy, and do share this and all of these Podcast episodes with your brothers and your Lodge.
