Doctrine of Discovery and the African American Experience: Rejecting White Theology in Pursuit of New Wine Skins

This weekend, I had an opportunity to present at “This Land is My Land? The Gospel of Conquest and the Church.” In the presentation, I discussed how the Doctrine of Discovery relates to the African American experience of slavery and capitalism, one of the pillars of white supremacy. I also discussed the role in forming a new theology in freeing the American church from this colonized worldview, moving us all to a place of freedom, reconciliation and love. Here is the audio of this talk >

I also encourage you to listen to the rest of the discussions from the conference, in particular the plenary by Mark Charles which was amazing. Here are the remaining audios >

I wear my faith like a royal garment, I treasure it, I respect it, I live and respond out of it, calling others to enter into a lifestyle of walking in the garden, in the cool of the day...with their creator. I beg for change; I crave harmony and unity between you and I. Like the rivers crave water, it is so much a part of my being, so much a part of me!
