Brethren ,

It is truly difficult to comprehend that we are at the end of December 2021, passing once again the Winter Solstice, with the Covid virus still dominating our lives. 

However, we take 'Faith' in seeing the vaccination programme doing its job and the particular strain of the virus, although quickly spreading, appears to be of a milder variety presenting us with 'Hope'. It augers well for us getting back to our normal masonic activity sooner rather than later. As the days now get longer and we imperceptibly move from darkness into light, remember at this wonderful time of the year the message of love handed to us. Let's encourage one another daily to practise 'Charity' of thought and deeds with our families, friends and the wider community.

May all of you take heart , have a joyful Christmas, and let's look forward together to a better 2022.


Brother Andrew Mushet,

Provincial Grand Master of Glasgow.
