Sunday Service, October 12, 2014: “Awake me in the new world.”

Christopher Columbus is often remembered in the U.S. for what he did not do in America. We’ll explore the ways the Columbus myth perpetuated a “Doctrine of Discovery” that glossed over the genocide and slavery brought to the New World. Hopedale participants will share readings from the journals of Columbus, the writings of his critics and the voices of the people he helped to extinguish. Service leader:  Liz Woedl.
