It is always rewarding to see "The Media" taking an interest in Freemasonry, whether as a result of our local, regional, national or international activities. A selection of recent examples appear below.

There is a wide and ever expanding range of media, incorporating traditional and new technology resources. This includes everything from individual websites, newsletters and e.mailings, right through to TV, Radio and Press. But none of them can respond without input from their users, and would be left high and dry without this.

Understanding the practical needs and different operational parameters of the published media is the first step to establishing a mutually beneficial relationship, which will ensure ongoing coverage.

There will be a lively and entertaining workshop for Lodge Information Officers during the course of the next Masonic season which will include media relations, Lodge websites and how to take better photos for them!

Warwickshire Freemasons are all aware of the success of the TLC Teddies scheme, both in this Province and on a national basis. Since the scheme started in 2001, over a million Teddies have been given to sick children when attending Accident and Emergency Units.

Provincial Charity Steward W Bro John Hayward shares a letter received in the Charity Office, from a grateful Mum. It reads as follows:

Our 2½ year old son recently had to attend the A&E department at Good Hope Hospital for treatment. Whilst he was being treated, he was given one of your TLC Teddies. “Fred Ted” as he became known, brought a smile to his face and was a great source of comfort to H…..., who was then admitted to the children’s ward overnight.

We would just like to say what a lovely idea these bears are and to thank you for your kindness and generosity. I’m sure that every child who receives one feels much better as a result of a teddy cuddle. Incidentally, “Fred Ted” has become a firm favourite since our return home too!

With our thanks and best wishes. 

We have a number of volunteer contacts throughout the Province who ensure that A&E units are always kept supplied with Teddies – many thanks to them for their continued efforts.

Our Salvation or Theirs?

Our Salvation or Theirs?

An outfit styling themselves Truth in Reality have published an amazing "Prayer of Release for Freemasons and their Descendants"claiming that a significant number of people reported having experienced physical and spiritual healings as diverse as long-term headaches and epilepsy as the result of this prayer!
 
The prayer implores God to forbid our Rulers to harass, intimidate or retaliate against their members and from sending any level of spiritual evil as retaliation (goodness, don't be late with your Annual Return). Also to rebuke, renounce and bind Witchcraft (the principal spirit behind Freemasonry, they claim), together with Baphomet, the Spirit of Antichrist and the spirits of Death and Deception, as well as our supposed love of position and power, the love of money, avarice and greed.
 
Oh, and don't forget to renouce and rebuke the Spirit of Fides, the Roman goddess of Fidelity that seeks to hold all Masonic and occultic participants and their descendants in bondage, nor the Spirit of Prostitution, which the Word of God (so they say) has led members of Masonic and other Occultic organisations astray, and caused them to become unfaithful to the One True and Holy God.
 
Perhaps Lodge Chaplains should take careful heed, just in case any of our members are worried about bumping into any such basket cases at the pearly gates? Better still, suggest we include them in our own prayers - they certainly need all the help and salvation they can get!
