                                                    Grand Oration
                                           By Russell Clay Brown, Grand Orator
                                             Presented at Grand Lodge 2004
                                                  (Continued from February Edition)


I want to end today by sharing some candid thoughts with you. They are not my own. I asked several men, whom I respect a great deal,
to talk with me. I wanted to know what Masonry meant to each of them. All are well-qualified men of strong morals, family values, and
hard workers. Some are Masons and others are not. Here are their responses:

I was under the impression that I had to be ASKED to become a Mason. I did my best to make myself a good candidate, according to
what I thought the requirements were. I was 44 before someone told me how to become one. My Dad asked me why it took so long and
I did not have the heart to tell him.


We need to get men to want to come to the lodge even when there are no meetings. Steak cookouts, football games on TV and outings
together are a start.

Surely we can open and close lodge without doing the same ceremony twice. Also, I am going to go crazy if I have to listen to the
Secretary tell me again who sat in what chair and what the gas bill was. I do not care. I trust him to pay it.

Just because somebody had to memorize all of this stuff 100 years ago does not tell me why I am doing it today. We have got to cut
this memory work down. How many guys never finish it? We have lives and work. I cannot give you an hour a day. This is a real hurdle
to getting new members.


Men who have the time to join are not always the ones we seek. We should try and attract busy, successful men who will take time
out for something meaningful, not folks who are bored with nothing to do.

I heard that President Roosevelt went to one of his son’s Masonic degrees and saw the White House gardener presiding as Master. I’ll
bet that gardener did not have his dirty clothes on. My Dad always wore his best clothes to lodge. It was important to him, like church.

We will not attract the leaders of the community that will be able to carry masonry into the next century if we focus our attention on
things like pancake suppers. We will just attract folks who like to eat pancakes.

I cannot believe that folks complain about paying $50 a year in dues. We need to raise our dues. Our lodges cannot operate on that.
It costs me more to take my family out to eat, once, than it does to pay my lodge dues.

We need our lodges to be a place where good men can get simply get together for an hour or so a week and just have true fellowship
with each other. We are losing that.

Brethren, I believe that you and I belong to the greatest organization in the world. We are the place that better fathers, husbands,
sons, and citizens are made. So, why are we losing members when people ought to be standing in line to join us? Why are many of the
best men in our communities not Masons? Where are the Jack Hightowers and Abner McCalls? Has Masonry lost some of it meaning to
the public? I certainly do not have all of the answers. However, I have shared candid thoughts and suggested new ideas. If we really
came here to improve ourselves in Masonry, then let’s get after it and stop complaining about our declining members. We must go home
tomorrow and immediately figure out how we Make Masonry Meaningful in every Texas community.

We do it by examining our current way of thinking and eliminating any barrier to quality membership. We retool our lodges into places
that meet the needs of today’s busy man. We must let our neighbors see that we are the police officers and the teachers and the
lawyers and the doctors and show them that we lead the communities. If we do not have those men as members, we need to go out and
get them. Do not forget your best friend and your sons. I can point to several Master Masons in this room right now, most younger than
fifty, who have revitalized Masonry in a 160-year old lodge. This can happen in your lodge too.

Last Friday during the Aggie/Texas game, I tried to make some notes for this Oration. Not an easy or natural task for me. But, my
jewel has a script on it. My youngest son, Tom, sat down beside me to see what I was doing. I told him that I was writing a speech. He
asked why, and I told him that I was the Grand Orator and I was going to talk to all of the Texas Masons down in Waco. He said:
“Daddy, what is an Orator”. He knows what a Mason is. I have already given both my sons a petition. My twelve-year old, Clay, quickly
jumped in and informed him that an Orator was someone who “liked to talk a lot”. Without missing a beat, my fourteen-year old
daughter, Katy, chimed in: “Man, Dad, did the Masons make this job up special for you or what”.

Grand Master, this has been a special year in my 25 years as a Mason. Thank you for the honor of serving this Grand Lodge. Thank you
for being a Masonic mentor to me. Brethren thank you for allowing me to speak what has been on my heart for a long time.

    The typographical error is a slippery thing and sly; you can hunt it ‘till you’re dizzy, but it somehow will get
    by. ‘Till the pages are off the press, it is strange how still it sleeps; it shrinks down in a corner and it never
    stirs or peeps.

    That typographical error is too small for human eyes. ‘Till the ink is on the paper, when it grows to
    mountain size. The remainder of the issue may be clean as it can be; but the typographical error is the
    only thing they’ll see!

                                              What Masonry Is:
                                   It is a voluntary association of men.
                                     It is a system of moral conducts.
                                               It is a way of life.
                                       It is religious in its character.
                                         It teaches the Golden Rule.
                                 It seeks to make good men better men.
                                It teaches morality through symbolism.
                         It uses rites and ceremonies to instruct its members.
            It is based on a firm belief in the Fatherhood of God, the Brotherhood of Man
                                      and the Immorality of the soul.
