Charlotte Mason's Religious Musings

I received this blog comment. I am sharing it here in case any of my blog readers are interested. I have not investigated this website other than to verify it is a working site. I am too busy with life to think about any of this, but maybe it would be of interest to some of you.


Dear ChristineMM,

My name is Benjamin Bernier, I am a pastor, and homeschool dad of seven boys, who made his doctoral dissertation studying Charlotte Mason's Philosophy.

I came across your blog looking to contact people interested in Charlotte Mason's philosophy who may like to know about my recent publication: Scale How 'Meditations' by Charlotte M. Mason, http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/scale-how-meditations/15100538#detailsSection

The meditations are a record of a series of Sunday talks delivered by Mason during the year 1898, at the House of Education, "Scale How" in Ambleside Uk, where she presents a verse by verse commentary on the first chapters of the Gospel according to St. John. I found this collection while doing research at the Armitt library in Ambleside. Most people are not aware that Mason wrote these, and that they are an amazing source of devotional inspiration, a direct disclosure of Mason's religious views and instructive in the art of Christian meditation. That is why I am spreading the word so that more people may benefit from this important resource in Charlotte Mason's work.

Let me know if you have any question, You may find more information at my blog: http://educationforthekingdom.blogspot.com/

Thank you for your time and attention, At your service, Benjamin Bernier--

“This duty of devout meditation seems to me the most important part of the preparation of the mother or other teacher who would instruct children in the things of the Divine life.”Charlotte M. Mason. ===== The Rev. Dr. Benjamin E. Bernier
