This is a personal publication created by myself in April 2003 with the intention of sharing educational papers on Freemasonry and related topics, which I have found to be both interesting and informative.
At that time, circulation was by email and restricted to the membership of my own Masonic Lodge, however, as time progressed, demand has seen it grow from a monthly email newsletter to its current website format in May 2010 and registration expanding from a local audience of approx 120 to over 1,000 Worldwide and continuing to grow.
Content includes all aspects of “Masonic Education” in its broadest sense and hopefully presented in such a way as to attract the attention of the reader, be they existing Freemasons, those contemplating membership or those simply wondering Who and What we Freemasons & Freemasonry are all about.
Very early in the individual development of a Freemason, he is admonished and challenged to make a “Daily Advancement in Masonic Education.” and it is to assist those Students that this publication is dedicated, while at the same time providing other Masonic Educators with additional material to assist them in their endeavours.
In the development of The Educator it has been my constant objective never to lecture, but always attempt to be informative, with the ultimate goal being to provoke the students interest, to the point where he will take full responsibility for his own Masonic educational growth. Topics have generally been arrived by my being inspired by something I have discovered in my own personal research, or have had shared with me by a fellow brother &/or associate, and which, in my opinion, is worth sharing with the wider audience.
You may note that this Website is not locked, nor readership restricted in any way, this is due to the fact that there will never be anything written by me that will violate my Masonic obligations in any way, and it is my dream, that by sharing material such as this, our friends, families and associates will get to better understand and appreciate what we as “Freemasons” are striving to accomplish through “Brotherly Love, Relief & Truth”.
From feedback received, this concept seems to be working very well and will probably continue well into the future.
New postings of articles/papers/poems etc. are shared on an ongoing basis and are sent out by email, generally every second Friday, following which they are added to the Website Library under the appropriate Category.
