2015 Collins Lecture, "The Gospel of Conquest: Native Americans, Christianity and the Doctrine of Discovery" at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, 147 NW 19th Ave., Portland. Guest lecturers will include Robert Miller, George "Tink" Tinker, and Kim Recalma-Clutesi, who will discuss the 15th-century basis for European Christian claims to the Americas, and examine its continued influence on relations among church, tribe and state. The sacredness of our connection to the ancestral owners of the land will be evoked by ritual, music, drumming, prayer, story and a shared meal, inspiring us toward reconciliation and renewal.
