Information on the Doctrine of Discovery, if you have time. Consider:
In 2016 the Churchwide Assembly adopted a resolution entitled the Repudiation of the Doctrine of
Discovery. Learn more here.
The Doctrine refers to several Papal Bulls (edicts/laws) issued in the 15th century giving
theological and legal permission for European Christians to conquer non-Christians, referred to as
‘pagans’ and through the Papal Bull claim their land and possessions for themselves.
Through the Papal Bull, people had the permission of the Church and the King of Spain to claim the land from the
‘pagans’, in this case referring to the Indigenous People. Thus, the Papal Bull had a huge impact on the present.
For more information, a resource book on the Doctrine is “Unsettling Truths: The Ongoing Dehumanizing Legacy of the Doctrine of Discovery” by Mark Charles and Soong-Chan Rah. Doctrine information gathered and shared by, Linda Muller
History of the Ho-Chunk
as presented by PBS
“We want Covenant to be a church that is unafraid to confront hard questions about justice, equality, power, and privilege from the perspective of a grace-filled God. We want Covenant to help people understand, question, and challenge the social structure that, in ways benign and malignant, visible and invisible, benefits some and disadvantages others. We want to explore how God’s vision for our lives and our church calls us to challenge injustice within ourselves and culture.”
