general conversation
(1) Does Masonry with its gorgeous vestments and elaborate ceremonial fill the gap left by the disuse of such things in traditional protestantism? This may also be true of the Gorsedd in Wales, many of whose wondrously-attired Bards are in everyday life nonconformist ministers. More seriously, the official indifference of Masonry to dogmatic Christianity fosters a kind of sub-Pelagian benevolence -- yes, awfully good chaps and full of good works, but do they really have space or time for the Grace of God?

(2) If the "prayers" used in Masonic ceremonies aren't acts of worship, what are they?

(3) Can anything beat the set speeches in Masonic ritual for sheer verbosity, pomposity and utter boringness?

Walter.
