1st MRF Symposium, August 2010

  • MRF0

  • The first MRF Symposium was held in Colorado.  It was hosted by the Brethren of Enlightenment Lodge No, 198.  We believed that the Craft would benefit from a weekend of workshops and presentations focused on assisting Lodges to make the utmost of their Masonic experience. This effort was continued with success over the next four Symposiums. 


Renowned speakers included: WB Bob Davis, WB Andrew Hammer, WB Mark Tabbert,  WB Cliff Porter, WB Rob Herd, WB Tim Hogan and a special presentation by nationally acclaimed author and speaker Timothy Freke, NY Times bestselling author of The Jesus Mysteries:
