On Bended Knee
Rick's Dad may be going home from Rehab on Thursday 05/11/2017!

Brethren, Let us keep our Worshipful Master, Rick Hallwood, in our prayers.  His father is currently in the emergency room of Kennesaw Hospital with an issue with his heart.  They are not sure what is wrong, but it is not good. Rick will not be at tonight’s meeting.

--Jim Cook, SE

"Appreciate your prayers.
He is out of immediate danger, off oxygen machine and on standard oxygen. EKG is good, still doing tests.
He is alert and talking. He feels much better."


On Tuesday morning there was a fire at the Marietta Masonic Temple, and the building suffered some damage. It was caused by an Arsonist. Please keep our Brothers at Kennesaw #33 in your prayers while repairs are in progress over the next few week.

Please continue prayers for Jerry, Donna and the Family


Trees fall onto Bro Goodnow's home - other tragedies abound..... 

Last Tuesday two 100 ft. oaks fell onto Bro David Goodnow's home. There was major damage and after the huge trees are removed, cleanup and repair is still to come. The family is living in a hotel. And, this all came a week after Dave was in the emergency room with chest pains, his wife had pneumonia, his family the flu and he took a hard fall in the back yard trying to help a neighbor with a kitchen fire. OMG!

Please, please offer up prayers for Bro Dave and family!

Nadine Herren Walker

September 3, 1919 - March 14, 2017
