Doctrine of Discovery
Join us
 Wednesday, October 16 
at 7:30 p.m. at St. Stephen’s for a viewing of the Anglican Church of Canada video
“Doctrine of Discovery: Stolen Lands, Strong Hearts”
 This is a film about a ‘devastating decision, made over 500 years ago, which continues to profoundly impact Indigenous and Settler people worldwide.’
During the following 3 Wednesdays (October, 23, October 30 and November 6) we will break the video into smaller portions and, using the discussion guide, explore the critical messages in the video.
We will have light refreshments available and our plan will be to end the evening by 8:45 p.m.
It is recommended (but not essential) to view the video in its entirety first. If you wish to sign up or have any questions, please contact Diane Swayze at pebblebeach@tbaytel.net
