Next Learning Opportunity: The “Doctrine of Discovery”

Next Learning Opportunity: The “Doctrine of Discovery”

Join us on June 28th at 7:30 (over Zoom) when we learn together about the Doctrine of Discovery. This concept–that most of us never learned about– is foundational for “settling” North America. Register Here

We want to spend our time sharing conversation so if you can, please watch these two videos and bring your thoughts to the meeting: 

  • Mark Charles’ hard-hitting but short TEDx talk. Mark Charles is a Navajo who has also been a pastor in the Christian Reformed Church in the Western US. His perspective is American, but this is a quick watch and very clear. 
  • Doctrine of Discovery: Stolen Lands, Strong Hearts: This one-hour documentary was released by the Anglican Church of Canada and focuses more on the implications of the Doctrine of Discovery concept in Canada.
