There is an interesting lecture coming up next week sponsored by The Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon. For all details, images and more go to their website at http://www.emoregon.org/2015_collins_lecture.php
— Thursday, November 19, the 2015 Collins Lecture, “The Gospel of Conquest: Native Americans, Christianity and the Doctrine of Discovery.”
The 2015 Collins Lecture “The Gospel of Conquest” will explore the history of the Doctrine of Discovery—the 15th century basis for European Christian claims to the Americas—and examine its continued influence on relations among church, tribe and state. Native American scholars and spiritual guides will lead us on a journey—rich in ceremony, music, story and shared meals—into the heart of our sacred connection to the ancestral stewards of this land, calling us to reflect and to move forward with hope into future action for the common good.
