Dismantling the Doctrine of Discovery

“We must work together to call our institutions, those whose identity is to follow the way of Jesus, to stand with us. We have an opportunity at Mennonite Church USA Convention, and again at Mennonite World Conference, to imagine together how we might go about this. Until individuals representing committed institutions stand together with Indigenous and vulnerable Peoples, our words and gestures too are rendered hollow and symbolic.”

Sarah Augustine

“Not surprisingly, we can see in our present situation how the privileged are protected and rewarded, and the less fortunate are demonized and ignored. Too many churches support the status-quo.”
