Many people ask what is Freemasonry? What is the big deal? How do I become a Freemason? 

Most Freemasons have a difficult time with this type of question. Freemasonry is a complex subject and certainly deserves more than a simple sentence or two, so most Freemasons tend to be tongue tied over what to say. They have difficulty expressing the depth of their feelings in a way that makes sense to the person asking the question.

In general, Freemasonry has been characterized as a fraternity devoted to high ideals and admirable benevolence whereby community service and charitable work are, in fact, principal Masonic activities.

Over the years hundred of articles and writings has been written that express the essence of freemasonry. 

The following articles below best describe what Freemasonry is and what it means to a Freemason.
