Watch Part 2 of Winter Talk: A Conversation on the Doctrine of Discovery Here
Winter Talk is a conversation on the Christian Doctrine of Discovery (DOD). Together we will spend time considering the DOD’s impact on Northern Light Disciples and our structure and theology. Winter Talk is a space of accountability to the Native American voice and how that voice is heard when exploring the past, understanding the present, and visioning the future.
Jon Ghahate (Laguna & Zuni Pueblo), the Museum Cultural Educator at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico, will lead us through an Indigenous understanding of the DOD. Born and raised on both the Laguna & Zuni Pueblos Jon is a parent, educator, and Vietnam Era Veteran. Jon’s work is to “give a voice of resilience and authenticity for those who have come before us and our future generations of Pueblo peoples.”
Alongside Jon is Nathan Hill who is pastor of University Christian Church of Hyattsville, Maryland. Nathan is originally from southwest Oklahoma, the son of a public educator and a nurse. Nathan is also a Core Anti-Racism trainer for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Currently working on a Doctor of Ministry from Phillips Theological Seminary, Nathan will help us understand the DOD’s impact on our lives and the church.
