Join us for a special live on-location episode of the Light Masonic Podcast, as we take you to Hotel Topeka at City Center in Topeka, Kansas - the venue for the 167th Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge of Kansas. Our esteemed guests for this episode include James Jack from Scotland, Mikel Stoops (a past Grand Master of Kansas now residing in Ireland), Cole Presley (a Kansas Past Grand Master), and Patrick Craddock (the owner and mastermind behind The Craftsmans Apron, a Masonic Regalia and accessory super store with some of the best quality items you can find today).

In this episode, we delve into some of the difficult and historic decisions made during the Annual Communication, exploring the importance of giving our best and highest quality work to everything we do in Freemasonry. Our conversation also highlights how this philosophy has impacted Patrick Craddock's business model and success.

Additionally, we are treated to a fascinating discussion about an amazing history book written by James Jack's son, which covers some powerful history from their lodge in Scotland, including the stories of those who passed away in World War I.

Don't miss this insightful and engaging episode, where we explore the rich history and timeless traditions of Freemasonry with some of the most knowledgeable and distinguished guests in the field.
