MW Illustrious Renford P. Brown Grand Lodge: Grand Master's Corner
It is my pleasure to welcome you to our newly designed and robust website, where we have taken great consideration to ensure our content is relevant for our members and those visiting the site, information on the site is useful, and fully representative of what I would like to convey as the Most Worshipful Grand Master. It is an honor to serve this Brotherhood and Fraternal Order, we have some of the most dedicated, loyal, and talented Masons in the world. We cannot allow ourselves to be distracted by those who do not understand Freemasonry or IFAMM; it is our role to help them learn what Freemasonry is all about through our actions, words, and deeds.
One of the great things about our Fraternal Order and this Grand Lodge is how many good men step up to the role of being a leader, thus largely ensuring and knowing that the success of our organization is totally dependent upon good brothers! I am humbled each moment I meet one of our brothers, be they new or have been around for some time. I realize that no matter how high we may climb within this Order, all roads lead us back to that first degree.
For 2017/2018, I will be utilizing our website and other technologies to its maximum capacity to unite and connect our members, newest brothers as well as our leaders. I will also be providing my newsletter on this page for members to keep abreast of what is happening throughout the State of Florida, National District, and on the Supreme Level. You are welcome to view it here and/or download it to read at a later time. I am very excited about how we can use technology to move our State forward while also remembering those who are not yet online.
As the Most Worshipful Grand Master, it can sometimes be overwhelming to keep the ship going in the right direction when we have hiccups along the way that work to set us back. I am committed to making sure our members have the tools they need to grow, I will ensure our Worshipful Masters have leadership and guidance that will assist them in educating their craft, and the District Masters who bring the will and pleasure of the Grand Master to their respective districts.
The theme from our 67th Supreme Convention, "Let's Stay Together!" as I know, a true brotherhood unites and bonds in ways where nothing outside can pull us apart nor disturb the peace and harmony within. I know as we pull together as one solid brotherhood - nothing can stand in our way. Be sure to visit our website regularly and stay tuned as we work tirelessly to give you the best of what our Grand Lodge has to offer.
Fraternally Yours, I am...
