Doctrine of Discovery’s Role in Climate Injustice

October 25 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

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 this mission.  One step in the process is to listen to people’s stories and recognize the roots which reverberate racism and inequity throughout our nation and churches.  Hear from many voices as we have the unique opportunity to watch a 30 minute documentary and hear directly from it’s creators:

Calvin Lee and Marisa Prince are Believers of Color – and frustrated Evangelical outsiders – seeking more for the American Christian Church. Are We There YET follows their cross country Road Trip to better understand the Doctrine of Discovery, its connection to contemporary Christian Nationalism, and if it’s possible to chart a new course for the American Christian Church.

Be sure to register ahead of time and save the information to your calendar as the documentary screening itself will not be recorded! 

We welcome the voices of this blossoming new media and educational resource: GOSPEL  and invite all from our ELCA communities to come to the table with their insight, concerns, and inspiration.  When you register (click) ahead of time, let us know if you have a story to contribute!
