On this episode of In The Chair I talk to Juan Sepulveda; not only a fellow Freemason, but also a fellow podcaster.
Juan is a member of Orange Blossom Lodge #80, in Kissimmee, Florida in the United States.
In this episode we discuss why Juan decided to set up The Winding Stairs podcast (see www.thewindingstairs.com, and search for it on iTunes to subscribe). One of the main reasons is to let people find out more about the lessons of Freemasonry. He considers these very important, and thinks that many overlook these lessons in pursuit of learning the ritual and progressing through the ranks.
It’s quite an eye opening discussion, especially when Juan explains that many Masons consider the minimum requirements are sufficient. We take this further by discussing the lessons taught by the Working Tools, and how valuable these lessons are and how they can be applied in your day to day living.
Juan is now setting up a side project (The Gentlemen’s Brotherhood) to attempt to bring some of the lessons of Freemasonry to the wider public; it’s a shame that some people who would benefit from Freemasonry don’t join for various reasons, and this may lead them to join Freemasonry at a later date.
I also ask Juan the ‘quick questions’ – although they are far from quick and Juan really goes into detail and imparts some fantastic thoughts and advice.
Why did he become a Mason?
Why did he stay a Mason?
Does he have a single memory of Freemasonry?
Any advice for people interested in joining Freemasonry?
