The end of the year is a time for reflection and gratitude. We’re giving thanks for all of the amazing experiences we had this year and the incredible people we shared them with. At the same time, we’re also thinking about ways we can put our best foot forward in the new year. That could be committing to a new hobby, reading more books, or spending more time with family. Regardless of what your new year’s resolution is, we think that these five podcasts will start your new year off on a positive note and help you delve deeper into the teachings of Freemasonry.

As Masons we know that by learning more about Freemasonry, we find new ways to further commit ourselves to our ancient traditions while giving back in our lives today.
