Doctrine of Discovery’s Role in Climate Injustice

The ELCA has been working to repudiate the Doctrine of Discovery.  As individuals and institutions continue to reconcile and repair relationships, let’s consider what specific role Creation Care Ministries can offer.  One step in the process is to listen to people’s stories and recognize the roots of racism and inequity found throughout our nation and churches.
The 30 minute film, Are We There Yet, amplifies voices rarely heard.  The recording below captures an intro to the film and discussion afterwards.

Calvin Lee and Marisa Prince are Believers of Color – and frustrated Evangelical outsiders – seeking more for the American Christian Church.
