Cari Fratres, Sorores, et Amici,
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
In order to focus on the many changes that have taken place in my personal life in the last year, I plan to step down from my position as Lodge Master, and will nominate Geoff to take my place. Assuming this change will be approved by the Electoral College, it will be made official on Sol in Leo, Luna in Pisces, dies Veneris, Anno Legis IV:xvii (August 7, 2009 e.v.).
I am very proud of being a member of Sekhet-Maat Lodge, and honored to have served as its Master. I am doubly proud of my brothers and sisters who have worked so hard over the last ten years since my own Minerval, and some of you long before that, to build the presence of O.T.O. in Portland to the level it is at today. We have broken new ground in the history of O.T.O. many times together, and I know that we will continue to do so in coming years.
I will remain an active member of the Lodge, continuing to serve as Priest and Initiator, and will continue to facilitate classes, discussions, and rituals as usual.
Geoff’s strength of character, wisdom, and intelligence will lead us to the next stage of our evolution, and I consider him to be the most qualified and best suited person for this job right now. Because of this, I am simply thrilled that he will take the reins. Please join me in thanking Geoff for agreeing to take on this challenging responsibility.
Love is the law, love under will.
In the Bonds of the Order,
I am Fraternally Yours,
and in Universal Brotherhood,
