What is the difference between the Jewish and Christian Old Testament?
Date: 11/18/2017 9:47:00 AM
Topic of Study: Theology
Presenter: Tracy Leavey
Synopsis: Christianity was born out from a Jewish Rabbi who believed that Love was the higher law, but what came before this Savior? There are books that are not considered cannon that create a different view of the world before the man named Jesus. Having its historical roots in these religions, a Freemason must ask, "What truths do these text have and how do they relate to these two world-wide religions?

Does rational thought have a limit?
Date: 12/16/2017 2:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Literature
Presenter: Katie Cumsille
Synopsis: Isaac Asimov, a world-renowned author and biochemist, wrote many wonderful fanatical stories of artificial intelligence. One of his short stories, known as Reason, gives a compelling argument on the limits of rational thought and creation. Join us as we take an outsider's perspective on Asimov's tale and look inwardly in how we derive our beliefs and what we consider to be truth.

"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest ... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
Albert Einstien
