Men's Fellowship

Event Date: 
Sunday, September 23, 2018 - 8:45am - 9:45am
Men's Fellowship will meet again Sunday, September 23. They are discussing issues surrounding a proposed Wisconsin Conference Resolution on the Repudiation of the Doctrine of Discovery. This 'Doctrine' grew out of two Papal Bulls (1453 and 1493), giving authority to explorers who departed from Christian Europe to non-Christian lands (e.g., Africa, Asia, and later, the Americas). This authority was to claim the lands and the resources by force if necessary and, incidentally, convert the heathens to Christianity. 
We believe the issue is relevant to our society today and the way we think about who are 'Americans' and who are not. The main point of the Repudiation resolution is to recognize the injustice of our historical actions.
Everyone is invited to join the discussion at 8:45 September 23 (grab some pancakes first, then join us for discussion).
