Advent Greeting 2017 The wind in the winter forest drives the flock of flakes like a shepherd, and some fir suspects how soon she becomes pious and lights holy, and listens out. The white ways she stretches the twigs – ready, and fends off the wind and grows against the one night of glory! Rainer Maria Rilke
Autumn Greetings 2017 Autumn poem by Caesar Otto Hugo Flaischlen (1864-1920) have sun in my heart, whether it storms or snows, whether the sky is full of clouds, the earth is full of strife! have sun in my heart, then come, what may! That shines full light on you the darkest day! Have a song on my lips, with cheerful sound and make you bang even of everyday hustle! Have a song on my lips, then come what may! This will help you overcome the lonely day! Have a word also for Andre in care and in agony and say what can be so cheerfully yourself: have a song on my lips, never lose the courage, have sun in my heart, and everything will be fine!
Goose Roast Food on 28 October 2017 Community Care + Design we invite and live. Dear Guests and Friends of our St. John's Lodge, Dear sisters and brothers, there is a deep yearning of the people for peace, freedom, equality and fraternity and we all seek our way there. In this way, the Freemasons are idealists who not only dream of such goals, but also know that one has to do the feasible thing of the imaginable too. At the end of October we were able to enjoy a nice family evening at the Potsdam Restaurant Schiff with a delicious goose roast and to greet friends and interested parties at our guest evenings with inspiring lectures at our house. Thus, commitment is practised and community can be experienced in person. We would like to express our special thanks to the organizers and helpers.
