Justice and the Doctrine of Discovery

Did you know that there was a theological justification for taking land from Native Peoples? Come to a special forum led by Rev. Irvin Porter on the 'Doctrine of Discovery,' and what the Church is doing today to speak out against it. Join us on Sunday, March 11th at 9 AM in the Learning Center (remember daylight savings!).

Rev. Irvin Porter serves as the Associate for Native American Congregational Support, in addition to spending part of his time at the Church of the Indian Fellowship here in Tacoma. Descendant from three Native American Tribes, Rev. Porter was the first Native American pastor at the church since it was founded in 1876. We are excited to have him lead us through this important topic.
