WE HONOR SECRETARY EMERITUS ALEXANDER

Past Master Dean Alexander, affectionately known as “The Secretary”, officiated as Installing-Master at the recent Installation of Officers ceremony; his 35th time in the role.  In doing so Brother Alexander completed 33 faithful years of dedicated service as Secretary of Irving Masonic Lodge #1218 A.F. & A.M.

Immense gratitude for Brother Alexander’s leadership is shared by the Officers and Past Masters of Irving.  Many members share similar appreciation for Dean.  Next time you see Brother Alexander shake his hand and let him know how much you appreciate him.

We dedicate this bulletin to Past Master Dean Alexander.

KNOCK AT THE DOOR

A new pastor was visiting the homes of his parishioners.

At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door. Therefore, he took out a card and wrote "Revelation 3:20" on the back of it and stuck it in the door.

When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he found that his card had been returned. Added to it was this cryptic message, "Genesis 3:10."  Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of laughter.

Revelation 3:20 begins "Behold, I stand at the door and knock." Genesis 3:10 reads, "I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid, for I was naked."
