Many members of the Society of Friends worship God in places that have been appropriated by force from indigenous peoples. What challenges arise when they try to do that, and how do Friends respond to these challenges? This forum was led by Cherice Bock and gave us a chance to reflect on these issues. Cherice Bock is a Friend who lives in Oregon on the traditional lands of Kalapuya (now part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde). She is an adjunct professor of eco-theology at Portland Seminary and she leads Oregon Interfaith Power and Light at the Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon. Cherice holds an M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary. She is a doctoral candidate at Antioch University of New England. The forum was held on April 3rd.
