Correcting the Lenses of the Past: Discovering Ourselves Today

The Doctrine of Discovery has had a profound influence on society and churches in the Western Hemisphere for nearly 500 years. The unfortunate legacy left by this has been the decimation of Native/Indigenous Americans and their culture, spirituality and way of life. This workshop will help us to re-examine Christian mission approaches and the injustices of the past, and develop current methods that are affirming and empowering for all.
