The Doctrine of Discovery
The Doctrine of Discovery is a Christian Doctrine. Sometimes called the Christian Doctrine of Discovery its philosophy, theology, and legal principles have shaped the history of countries throughout the world, and especially the United States. To this day it continues to shape and perpetuate the injustices which Native Americans in Oregon, the Northwest, California and throughout our country experience. What is the church called to do given its complicity in these injustices? This summer the General Assembly of our church will be presented a resolution to address these issues. Our church has been invited to sign onto this resolution. We need to study, reflect, and decide where we stand. All members and leaders are invited, encouraged to study and reflect in preparation for our upcoming vote. Sharon Warner will facilitate this course.
