    Drop in FM membership, and drop-outs, appear to be happening in lodges everywhere, Tim. It may majorly be attributable to a lack of genuine commitment to its principles and ideals on the part of practising masons. Hypocrisy and deviousness, as pointed out by you in your region, is, regrettably, a fact of life almost everywhere. Additionally, the general degradation in moral values in societies worldwide, is telling adversely on all institutions, and FM is no exception. The downtrend can be arrested to some extent by intensive involvement of members in various pressing concerns of society, and fostering better and rewarding relationships with people and communities around. Stepping up cheque-book charity alone, as you have put it, is not going to be of much help, since such charities already abound, and merely adding to it will not appeal to public sentiment in any significant manner. Every member must truly transform into an ornament of the society in which he lives, through refined qualities of head and heart, bringing to bear the lofty principles enshrined in RB and VOL…greetings and best wishes.
