My Brother Knights,
I shared the following story at a regional meeting a few weeks ago…
“This guy’s walking down a street when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep he can’t get out. A doctor passes by, and the guy shouts up, “Hey you, can you help me out?” The doctor writes a prescription, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a priest comes along, and the guy shouts up, “Father, I’m down in this hole, can you help me out?” The priest writes out a prayer, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a friend walks by. “Hey Joe, it’s me, can you help me out?” And the friend jumps in the hole. Our guy says, “Are you stupid? Now we’re both down here.” The friend says, “Yeah, but I’ve been down here before, and I know the way out.”
The four pillars of our order are the way out. Faith in Action is our way out. Ultimately it is our fraternity in Christ that is the way out. Gentlemen, the world we live in is filled with holes (especially now)! Let’s help each other out.
Please do me a favor…make certain your council paperwork i.e. home corporation info, tax info, and insurance information are up-to-date, and that your council is Safe Environment compliant. Let’s continue to help each other out.
