Masonry is quality. Be proud that you belong to an organization which has stood for quality in its lodges longer than this country has existed. Be glad that the rest of the world is catching up. Use this chapter with quality in mind and action. As a leader, work to empower those around you, provide opportunities for education & training, strive to recognize, foster, and encourage the strengths each brother brings to lodge. Continuously strive to improve the quality of communications, the quality of our relationships with one another, the quality of our teamwork, the quality of our support for the community, the quality of life for the young people we know. As a Mason, each of us is charged and obligated to be a builder of the temple of human spirit.
