Online Book Study

5 Week Online Book Study via Zoom
Monday nights from 7:30pm – 9:00pm
Begins January 31

We’ll be reading The Land Is Not Empty: Following Jesus in Dismantling the Doctrine of Discovery by Sarah Augustine.

Sarah Augustine, a Pueblo woman, unpacks the harm of the Doctrine of Discovery—a set of laws rooted in the fifteenth century that gave Christian governments the moral and legal right to seize lands they “discovered” despite those lands already being populated by Indigenous peoples…In this prophetic book, Augustine, reframes the colonization of North America as she investigates ways that the Doctrine of Discovery continues to devastate Indigenous cultures, and even the planet itself, as it justifies exploitation of both natural resources and people.

The purpose of this book study, that will be led by Justin Buhr and Amanda McCulloch, is to learn together and as a group find ways that we at Highland can support a local Indigenous organization.

Order your book online through Indigo, Amazon or Mennomedia.org  

If the cost of purchasing the book would prevent you from joining, contact Amanda, as we want to ensure that everyone who would like to participate can.

Please let Amanda McCulloch know by Jan 26 if you’ll be joining: [email protected] / 519-745-9461 x 222
