My father became a Freemason in 1967. I was born in 1968. I grew up knowing all these wonderful friends of my father (he was a publican then and had his own pub!) and it was like a natural progression for me.

He re-took the chair to initiate me and when I heard his voice my nerves disappeared and I knew everything would be fine. When I was restored to the blessing of material light I recognised so many people I knew that I belonged there.

I know that we shouldn't consider Freemasonry as a Religion, but sometimes it is difficult to separate the two. I live my life by the Ritual book and whilst freemasonry is not my whole life, it is still a very important part of it.
