Does anyone have any ideas on how to get some younger members to join OES? Also, for an organization that allows all religions, doesn't really cater to other religions too well. Masonry seems much more flexible with that.

I get the Biblical stories and they are great but the overuse of the term "Christianity" doesn't speak to those that didn't grow up here in the U.S. as Christians. My wife who is from Turkey was recently initiated and so far hasn't liked what she has heard. I had explained OES is for all religions and that other than the Biblical heroine stories, there wouldn't be Christian references. She was totally open to that and liked the idea of stories of good character, no matter their origins, were good. Then more Christian references were given than I had (unknowingly) implied would be.

I think her expectation was that there would be more spiritual guidance and activities. I don't know how to sell it to her and stay within boundaries of understanding she's not of Protestant or Catholic background. I could use some guidance on any books she could read that aren't just Biblical quotes or too many Christ references. She doesn't mind Christian people and all of her friends are but she personally is not of Christian background and has a hard time relating to the Order.

Thank you brothers and sisters!

For recommended reading I would contact General Grand Chapter.
There are some books in the public market, but it would be better
to get a recommended list.

Biver no longer has a day-to-day role in Hublot, but rather manages Hublot replica watches along with other LVMH watch brands from the top. For instance, it was recently announced that he replica watches would be filling in as the interim CEO of TAG Heuer - another LVMH brand. That isn't a job Jean-Claude probably rolex replica wants right now, as he has been toying with retirement for a while - but he steps up when he is rolex replica sale needed. Hublot has been doing a good job of keeping the fire alive without Jean-Claude, but with Ricardo always out and about, I can't help but wonder who rolex replica keeps the peace back at HQ. I mention the above as a semi-explanation of the fact that Hublot doesn't always have all the replica watches details settled when they announce a new replica watches uk partnership or product. The major question on the table is whether or not there will be a limited replica watches uk production "Mr. Brainwatch Edition" watch.
