Financial Summary

For complete information visit: April 2009 Profit and Loss Statements.

Monthly Percentage
Yearly Percentage to date

This month makes the fifth of the last six that we’ve had our self-sufficiency over 100%, this month edging us closer to our target for the year of 105%. We’re making great progress on this, though it’s important to keep in mind that we have a substantial annual expense ($500/year liability insurance premium) coming up in June that will knock us back several percentage points if we don’t keep ahead of the curve.

Announcement from the Lodge Master

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

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,

Jack Parsons webcomic

Sunday, April 19th, 2009

In case you missed it, The G-Spot podcast has an excellent interview with Richard Carbonneau, author of the The Marvel, an upcoming graphic novel about the life of rocket scientist and O.T.O. initiate Jack Parsons.

Richard has kindly permitted Sekhet-Maat Lodge to use a page from The Marvel in our materials. This image, depicting a Gnostic Mass temple, in coming weeks will be printed on postcards that you will be able to find freely available at various locations around town. Keep an eye out for them!
