Dear Brethren our world, much including Freemasonry, is working through a darkened hour. We have seen the prompt and drastic impact that the current COVID-19 virus has played on Masonic meetings and gatherings across the country and globe but this is not the first time the Craft has had to make quick decisions in the best interest of the Brethren. Join us in this episode as the Historical Light historians guide us through how Freemasonry is currently being affected by this historic epidemic which we are living through and mix in some enlightening comparison with some equally troubling situations from our past Brethren as well.

Chivalry! Honor! Friendship! In this postmodern era, the once-sacred idea of what constitutes a friend has been watered down for most by the simple click of an ADD or REMOVE button.

Join us with special guests Dylan John Callahan and Casey Pemberton as we explore the ancient Greek tale of Pythagorean mystics Damon and Pythias. The important lessons from that tale have been the central aim of the Knights of Pythias since its formal creation during the American Civil War. Bro. Powers considers becoming a Knight, Bro. Marshall recites some poetry, and even Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin garner mention as we discover a film originally created to be a celebration of their famous bond.

Have you heard the jokes around Freemasonry about “the goat”? Have you heard of the Odd Fellows (IOOF)? Well, in this episode of Historical Light our resident historians tackle both topics head-on with a special guest, Ainslie Heilich. To top things off, Ainslie is our first guest on the show that is not a Freemason, but rather an Odd Fellow. We get to go on a special private tour of an Odd Fellows lodge and tackle the issue of the goat head-on in the process. You will not want to miss this episode!

Moore shares insight about those early days of the first British lodges on the American frontier and how they played a role in England's hope to push French colonists out. He also talks about Michigan Masonry's unique role in (or out of) the Baltimore Convention, the George Washington artifacts used at the commemoration of the Detroit Masonic Temple, and more! We also take a look at a Rolling Stones album cover, and discuss various famous musicians who have played in the building as well as one who stepped up recently to support it financially!

Historical Light has not been keeping our intended schedule lately. Some of you know the reasons behind that but never the less we are getting back on track!

Tonight we are doing a recap on my recent trip to Masonic Con 2018 in Attleboro Mass. where I presented this year on the importance of preserving our Masonic History.

We are stoked to have friend and Brother W:. Rob Jackson on the show to help us with the recap. He was also in attendance this year helps provide another view of the event.

Sorry yall, we are not spotlighting Masonrytoday.com today but still be sure to go check them out.

Recording the intro of today's show while in the hospital waiting room.  You may have heard by now that Brother Angelo Mino who you will see featured in the into of Historical Light was recently diagnosed with stomach cancer and is currently in that fight. Additional to that my younger brother passed away just over a week ago so things have been crazy. I do apologize that we have not been keeping our regular schedule but I hope you can understand why.

Tonight we are featuring an interview with Brother and Masonic Author Julian Rees. He is bringing us not only some history behind his publications but a look into the start of the Co- Masonic orders with Le Droit Humain.  This is a very tabu subject for a lot of people but we are not going at this in a debate format instead we are merely taking a look at the history behind it.

Taking a break from the interviews for today to allow time to shwo respect to an important name in my lodges history, William J. McClintock.  He started out as a mysterious frame portrait on the wall in the lodge room.  After some time of digging I was finally able to match the face in that frame to the name of a past master of Gardner who served a collective twelve years in the East of the ldoge that we had been missing a photo for.  Join us today as we take a deeper look into Brother McClintock and pay our respect.
