At the 2018 Wisconsin Conference UCC Annual Meeting a vote was entered to have us gather into a time of discussion and study around the Doctrine of Discovery and our faith, with the purpose being to vote on a resolution to renounce the Doctrine of Discovery at April’s annual meeting. We at Memorial UCC have had several opportunities to watch videos and attend discussions on this document.
God & Imperial Power, Jesus & Economic Injustice
Wednesdays, March 13, 20, 27, and April 3rd from 6:30- 8 p.m.
Participants will gather to watch and discuss a series of lectures given by both John Dominic Crossan and Joerg Rieger. According to FaithandReason.org, Crossan and Rieger will expand our awareness of the historic collusion between Christianity and the empires of the west, from Jesus’ non-violent program of resistance to Roman Imperialism under Augustus, to the imperialistic “partnerships” of the 21st Century.

Every week, a group of folks gather in our library to look at the Scripture texts that will be used the following Sunday. These are often very lively discussions — and the baked goods and coffee aren’t bad either. Anyone is welcome to join at any time.
