Upcoming GL Events
Freemasons are renowned for their charitable acts. As a society, we are taught that true charity is a selfless act, but is it? As Freemasons, we are seekers of Truth. What does the science say and, equally important, what does it mean? Continuing with our annual theme, "Geometry: The Art and Science of Relationships," we will be focusing on "Our Relationship with Charity." Our guest speaker is a Harvard Professor and TEDx Cambridge presenter who has studied the science of Charity and our motivations behind performing charitable acts.
