THE MIGHTY FLAME
It was a small group- the one that gathered at the Goose and Gridiron Tavern in London in the year 1717- the representatives of four London Lodges of Speculative Freemasonry who conceived the idea that a mutually formed administrative body for the lodges in London might serve as a governing body and clearing house for rules and laws.
In Masonic literature writers have been criticized for extravagant statements; for over-enthusiasm in presenting Masonic history. But with it all, is there a literature richer in the realm of moral courage, richer in the greatness of man's effort to become God-like; or richer in the story of man's upward climb through the darkness of doubt and ignorance into the light of understanding and tolerance?
Why not indulge in imagination?
There must have been greatness in that small assembly of 1717. There were men who surely sensed the danger of the day, and had the moral courage to face the situation. They must have been men of vision who could look beyond the present and all its difficulties into a tomorrow in which man would regain his dignity. They must have been men of determination and vision, who insisted the religion should be a force to unite men, not separate them.
Why not let the imagination turn to 1717?
The Temple is the history of the Builder.
