In any Order you will have the workers and the players. I
believe part of the Work is to have the Wisdom to know the
difference. I have had great experience with the EGC and the
Oasis I have attended, though some of the members of the
Oasis did rub me wrong but we will find that in any part of
life. Overall though I feel it is mostly a good group and
truly wants to be on the Path. I have a love for Soror H and
Brother C they are great together, and Frater M and Soror B

Yeah I got tired of that phrase as well. So far all of my

Perhaps you should ask him that someday. We all grow and

of tyranny and a splash of fanaticism." ~ Gerald Del Campo
