MESSAGE FROM THE DEPUTY

Volume 3 / Issue 3 July 2021

MESSAGE FROM THE DEPUTIES

“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the

obstacles which he has overcome.” - Booker T. Washington

Welcome to another issue of the Desert Beacon! We hope and pray that you and

your families are doing well and continue to be blessed.

On behalf of the Imperial Deputy for the Desert, PC Rosalannd Daley, and myself,

we bring you greetings, love, and a call to action.

All of us have endured this past year in different ways and it has taught us that life

is not to be taken for granted. We have lost family members and at the same time

many of us became new parents, grandparents, aunties, and uncles.

At the beginning of the pandemic, I thought the spark would fade not being able to

meet and do our usual work. For many, that spark is now a flame, and we are excited

to act and do what we do!

Make lives better for our communities and our families.

• I challenge each of us to try something different and new.

• Try to pick up that phone and call someone you have not spoken with in years!

• Try to forgive that Noble or Daughter who looked at you the wrong way back in

2004 at the ball!

• Try to speak less and listen more!

• Try not to judge so quickly until you have all the facts!

• Nobody knows it all so try not to get so mad when someone act like they do!

• Try to call a new member and welcome them!

• Try to call an older member and simply say, I love you!

• There is so much we can do that does not take a lot of effort but can make an

impact.

All we must do is try!

Greetings from the Office of the Imperial Outside Spy,

It is indeed an honor to continue to serve as the Imperial Outside Spy for the Imperial Court and

represent the Desert of Michigan. We have experienced some once-in-a-lifetime events over the

past year, but we can say, “We made it.” We have lost many loved ones, and our lives have been

forever changed, but WE MADE IT. Let us continue to fight the good fight against Covid-19 by being

diligent in following the safety guidelines outlined by our city, state and getting vaccinated. With these

precautions, we have started to move towards normalcy and serving our community again. I was

pleased to see us come together at the “Occupy the Corner” event and look forward to so much more

that our great Desert will do in the coming months. Please continue to check on our elders, and I

look forward to seeing you in person soon.

Yours in Service,

Dt. Arlana Miller-Brown

Message from the Grand Master

Let your light so shine before men, that they

may see your good works, and glorify your

Father which is in heaven. ~ Matthew 5:16

The Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge hosted a

Town Hall on June 5, 2021, during which time the designs of

the 2021-22 Trestle Board was presented to the members of

the Michigan Prince Hall Family.

The theme for this administration, “Doing The Right Thing For The Right Reasons” will

serve as our marching orders to implement and execute those initiatives and programs that

will be beneficial to the communities we serve here in Michigan. Our driving message,

“Exposing Michigan Prince Hall Masonry to the Greater Good” will be centered on those

areas of concern that will allow for us to increase and maintain financial stability, increase

our membership, transform our youth program, bolster our Michigan Education Leadership

Program, enhance our Grand Lodge business operations, and mentor our future leaders.

Our most notable undertaking is the multi-million-dollar restoration of Metro Prince Hall

Temple. Under the able body leadership of Past Grand Master Paul W. Robinson and his

committee, our “Restoring Tomorrow’s Legacy” project is steadfastly focused on

renovating Metro Prince Hall Temple to the beautiful jewel she once was. The pledges and

donations received thus far serves as an inspiration, but for us to reach our goal, we need a

larger commitment of financial assistance from our members, potential donors, and other

sources of funding. Make your donation and pledge as soon as possible. Donations can be

made to Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge or via PayPal at

mwphgl3100@gmail.com. To ensure proper accountability, please add in the memo

section of your donation “Metro Temple Capital Campaign”.

We have an AWESOME team of Grand Lodge officers ready, willing, and able to provide the

necessary leadership, commitment, and support to the Jurisdiction. We stand shoulder to

shoulder ready to warn off any approaching danger. Our service to you is unyielding and

unselfish.

I am excited about our anticipated successes and encouraged by the outpouring of support

from our collective membership, and the leadership of the Appendant and Concordant

bodies. Our bonded partnerships will continue to serve as our inspiration to be a difference

maker in the Jurisdiction of Michigan. There may be some obstacles on our journey, but I am

encouraged by my spiritual faith, that the Supreme Architect of the Universe will divinely

beseech his will on the hearts and minds of our members in order that we may do what ye

saith the Lord.

I THANK YOU ALL in advance for your unwavering support in growing Michigan PHA to

greater heights. In the infamous words of Past Grand Master Walter C. Griffin Jr., “What

come you here to do?” God’s blessings to you and your families.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all

thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy path. Proverb 3:5-6

! Imperial Officers

from the Desert of Michigan,

New York, and Oasis of Toronto

are currently in discussion about

the transition. Imperial Council

decided to have the Oasis of

Toronto under the umbrella of

the Desert of Michigan. The

Deputies of the Desert Gerald

Williams (MI) and Damien Hall

(NY) have agreed to work collectively to increase membership in Canada. Geographically it makes sense

for these two Deserts to combine their efforts focusing on Toronto, Windsor, Montreal, Niagara Falls and

other parts of our neighbors to the North. Stay tuned for further information.

Communication and information are key to any successful group. To

enhance our communication methods, we are excited to launch some new

platforms the Desert of Michigan members can use.

The first phase of our new website is ready to go! You can now visit

the Desert of Michigan website to get updates on the Desert.

WWW.DESERTMIPHA.ORG

Our Desert of Michigan group email is now active! To send information

to members of the Desert you can simply send one email to the group. This

group is used for your events, fundraisers, and community service

activities. You will also receive updates from Imperial Council and Court.

To send a message to the group use the following email address:

Al-Ashraf Temple No. 167 will be supporting the Dungeytreei Heritage Foundation and their monthly food

distribution on July 17, 2021. The foundation was founded to honor the memory of Dr. Wilbur & Cleomae

Dungey, who were the parents of Super-Bowl winning coach Tony Dungey, a Hall of Fame coach and native

of Jackson. Dr. Dungey was a Tuskegee Airman during World War II, and he and his wife were strong

supporters of the Jackson community.

The food drive takes place on the 3rd Saturday of each month at 10:00 am at the Oasis of Love Full Gospel

Church, 800 S. Cooper Street in Jackson. In addition, we will also be accepting donations of diabetic socks

for the Temple’s Annual Sock Drive. This project is the brainchild of Deputy of the Desert Michael Lipscomb

and benefits nursing homes in the cities the Temple represents – Lansing, Jackson, and Ann

Arbor/Ypsilanti.

All Temples/Courts in the Desert of Michigan are invited to participate; there will be a pizza party at

Klavon’s Pizza in Jackson immediately following the event. Please come out and support! And wear your

shrine regalia. Please contact either Deputy Lipscomb, 419-270-1958, or Noble Erick Heard, 734-635-0005.

Occupy the Corner - Detroit

7 years ago Council President Pro Tempore Mary Sheffield, after visiting with Brooklyn Council

Member Jumaane Williams and attending an Occupy the Corner event in New York, decided to

launch Occupy the Corner – Detroit in her district. The mission is to engage the community,

connect them to resources and empower residents to be self-determinate with respect to

improving the quality of life in some of Detroit’s most impoverished neighborhoods. The

improvement goals for residents in these areas include the following which positively affect

quality of life:

• Improve Police and Community Relations

• Connect Neighbors and Neighborhoods

• Increasing Physical Activity

• Improving Mental Health

• Reducing Daily Stress Levels

• Providing Access to Jobs, Education and Resources

• Improving Access to Health and Dental Care

• Increasing Civic Participation

• Registering Voters

• Giving Away School Backpacks and Materials

• Providing Clothing and Shoes to the Underserved

Since its inception, Occupy the Corner – Detroit has occupied 30 Neighborhoods throughout

District 5 and provided resources and tools for healthy outcomes to over 40,000 residents,

mostly children, in District 5 and Detroit and as a whole. The program has been criticallyacclaimed

by media outlets throughout Southeast Michigan and Council Members from other

Districts and Cities are requesting Occupy the Corner – Detroit events in their locales.

Starting in the first part of June each year, Occupy the Corner – Detroit events are held every other

Friday evening throughout the summer. The program grows every year with more non-profit and

social services agencies signing on to be a part of this important service to the community. In lieu

of looming cuts in federal programs, Occupy the Corner – Detroit will be more important than it

has ever been this and subsequent years. Thus, Council President Pro Tempore Mary Sheffield is

seeking support and partnerships with the philanthropic and business community to further its

mission of producing healthier outcomes in some of Detroit’s most impoverished neighborhoods.

IN SPITE OF COVID, THE WORK CONTINUES, ONE FOOT AT A TIME!!!

Each year, Al Ashraf Temple #167 collects diabetic socks for distribution to nursing homes in the

communities represented by our members – Lansing, Jackson, and Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti.

Why socks? Diabetes is a disease that impacts the body’s ability to produce and process insulin;

a side effect is an increase in blood glucose levels. This also causes the blood vessels of the lower

extremities to narrow and harden, restricting blood circulation. As a result, these limbs often feel

cold, and can lead to complications as severe as amputation.

We are now conducting the 2021 campaign and would appreciate your donations; If you elect to

make a monetary donation you can donate through cashapp - $noblemike02 or contact:

Deputy of the Oasis Michael Lipscomb OR Illustrious Potentate Byron Christopher Williams

The Phyllis Chapter welcomes the

Jurisdiction of Michigan as its newest Auxiliary.

Submitted by Sis. Kelley Kellis

The Phyllis Chapter was founded 1983 and is an auxiliary of the Phylaxis Society (a

membership society that consists of free and accepted masons who have a desire

to receive and disperse masonic knowledge-masonic light”). As an International

Society of Members of the Order of the Eastern Star, with Prince Hall Affiliation, its

members are researchers, writers, editors, and those members interested in and

supportive of the mission of the organization. The members of the Phyllis Chapter

only concern themselves with the purposes as stated and shall in no manner,

directly or indirectly, interfere with the Legislative or Ritualistic affairs of any Order

of the Eastern Star Chapter, or make suggestions thereunto. The Phyllis Chapter

provides a universal center and bond of union for Prince Hall Order of Eastern Star

members worldwide that desire to pursue the TRUTH AND LIGHT of this glorious

Order.

On Saturday, March 6, 2021 the great jurisdiction of Michigan became home to the

newest Auxiliary of the Phyllis Chapter. The Great Lakes Auxiliary was installed

during the 38th Annual Session of the Phyllis Chapter. This year’s conference was

the first virtual conference, and The Great Lakes Auxiliary became the 21st Auxiliary

of the Phyllis Chapter.

A huge thank you to our GWM Shanna L. Garrison and to the Phyllis Chapter for the

opportunity to bring an Auxiliary to the jurisdiction of Michigan. A special shout

out to our Sister members who answered the call and made it happen by becoming

members of this great organization.

The Sister Members of The Great Lakes Auxiliary are excited to learn and looking

forward to starting our journey.

Good Afternoon,

This is just another one of those opinions that

popped up in my head. So please do not judge

me. (Smile) I thought I would share it with you.

As I stroll through Facebook and other social

media platforms viewing pictures and events of

our Masonic/Shrine/Greek Fraternities and other

social groups, what I have noticed most is how

our brothers “Black Men” do not seem to

smile! Can anybody tell me why most of our men

do not smile in these pictures? Can you tell me

what is it that makes our black men want to look

so HARD and sometimes even angry in these

pictures? What concerns me most is these

brothers are often representing a certain group, be it

Masons, Shriners, or Greek Fraternities. Of course I do understand the professional

look, but most of the images seems to be that of anger, toughness, or hardness.

My 11-year-old grandson was looking at some of my lodge and shrine pictures the

other day and he said to me; “Papa why does everybody on the picture look mad,”

and then this profound statement came out of his mouth; “I don’t think I would

want to be in that group when everybody is mad all the time”. Brothers, we need

to be mindful of whose watching us and the example we are setting, even with a

picture. Just the look on your face can change the mind of a child. Let us not

mention those who are already afraid of us, you know the ones with the badges

and guns. When they see these types of pictures, they see angry black men.

Just my thoughts.

Stay blessed and stay safe.
