Overview

In this book, noted Masonic author Mark E. Koltko-Rivera, Ph.D., describes and offers solutions for the Masonic membership crisis in the United States. The 14 chapters and five appendixes here include:


  • Why society needs a numerically stronger Freemasonry--and why this is entirely within the Fraternity's grasp.
  • The five problems underlying the membership crisis--and the Five Tasks that will solve those problems.
  • 46 numbered recommendations to work on those Five Tasks.
  • Specific suggestions for what the rank-and-file Lodge member, the Worshipful Master of the Lodge, the District Deputy Grand Master, and the Grand Lodge can do to advance work on the Five Tasks, and further the Resurgence of Freemasonry.
  • Guidelines for planning and conducting Masonic education in the Lodge.
  • Directions to prepare and conduct: a Chamber of Reflection, a Master Mason Rededication Ceremony, and an Open House (at both the levels of Particular Lodges and the Grand Lodge).
  • Guidelines for instructing Candidates in the Preparation of a Masonic Research Paper.
