I've heard they were talking about doing a video. IDK how I feel about it. Not SR. I prefer a linear approach to my degrees not "Quantum Leap" style lol.
Enjoy. Soak it up and and compare notes with Gary. Should be interesting.
Generally speaking you will take one degree from the four bodies (Lodge of Perfection, Council, Chapter, Consistory) these are the four bodies in a NMJ SR.....when I went in, we had six or eight (cant remember right now) degrees.I watched the video last night that was made by the SR's in Indianapolis. It wasn't what I thought or expected. Not sure if it would be considered a degree or a promotional video.
Apparently we are only required to do the 4th, 32nd and 3 in between degree to qualify. I thought there was a test or something. Maybe I'm mistake that with something else.
Never say Never....... I have heard it is being "discussed" in DC as well...The video is not the same as "communicating" the degree. The video is a NMJ thing and not used, that I know of at least, in the SJ. I hope it never is. In the SJ you must be exemplified (watch the play) for the 4,14,18,30, and 32 degrees. The rest must be at least communicated. My valley is doing a mix of these two principals for many of the non-required degrees. We call it exemplicate where we have 3-4 people and a conductor (with a candidate) read out the parts without acting the play. It has the advantage of giving the candidates more of an understanding about the degree than just hearing a short synopsis of that degree. This year we are doing a joint reunion with the New Bern, NC and Greensboro, NC valleys so that they can see what we are doing. We have had visitors from Other valleys and states come to see them as well. Our valley will never do a degree by video. That is just sad.
