Doctrine of Discovery
An On-line Study on Thursday Evenings
March 3rd to April 7th from 7 to 8:30 pm
~ from the BC Synod Website
As part of your Lenten Spiritual Practice, join us on Zoom for 6 weeks starting March 3rd as we take an in depth look at the Doctrine of Discovery, a document that has shaped western attitudes towards Indigenous people for the past five centuries.
Organized by the BC Synod’s Journey Towards Reconciliation Group, each evening will start with a 20 minute Lenten Vespers (Evening Worship) led by different congregations in the BC Synod. Then we take a short break before we dive into a one hour discussion with video on the Doctrine of Discovery.
Come to one or all of them. This is a great chance to start or continue your journey of reconciliation with your Indigenous siblings both as individuals and as a congregation. We invite people to sign up on Eventbrite so we can get an idea of how many people are coming. Below you will find the Eventbrite Link and links to two videos that you can use to promote this event in your congregation.
