Saint Andrew Group
for Ecology (SAGE)
As members of Saint Andrew Christian Church, believing that the earth is God's and all life is sacred, it is with humility, awe, and wonder we seek ways to live in harmony with and as faithful stewards of God's creation.
"The Earth is God's and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it; for God has founded it on the seas, and established it on the rivers."
SAGE in Action
Thanks for joining SAGE in Action throughout this year (and well beyond) as we focus on ways to conserve water. Here’s a tip: Run your clothes washer and dishwasher only when full. You can save up to a 1,000 gallons a month.
The Alverna Covenant was written by members of the Task Force on Christian Lifestyle and Ecology of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) while meeting at Alverna Retreat Center, a Franciscan retreat in Indianapolis, Ind. The name has added significance. Alverna is named for Mt. Alverna in Italy, the mountain retreat given to Francis of Assisi. Francis is honored for his concern for the care of and relatedness of all creation. The 800th anniversary of Francis’ birth was celebrated in 1981, the year the Alverna Covenant was first introduced at the General Assembly of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). To read the Covenant and enter into the covenant visit Alverna Covenant.
