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."
Street Clean Up
Sunday, February 8, 2015, 7 p.m.
Colonial UCC Church (7039 Mission Road, Prairie Village)
Social Hall, Lower Level,
Parking behind the church and on south side; also across Mission at Macy’s.
The Justice and Witness Committee of Colonial UCC Church and the Johnson County League of Women Voters are co-sponsoring a screening followed by a discussion with Mark Lichty, Executive Producer. This film is a transcendent tale of epic proportions where ordinary people are making a choice to stand up and protect their community’s and children’s future.
Emmy Award-winning Resolution Pictures captures the passion and courage of people engaged in a David and Goliath confrontation. They stand together, challenging a system that promotes profit over health. We meet mothers, fathers, scientists, doctors, farmers and people from all sides of the political spectrum taking a hard stand against energy extraction techniques not proven to be safe. With the oil and gas industry’s thrust to expand fracking seen as a moral and civil rights issue, this provocative film documents a people’s movement, a groundswell rising.
Now that the construction is nearing completion, we will have started Street Clean Up of our adopted stretch of 127th Street. We meet next on February 15, 4:00 pm, in the parking lot.
SAGE Library Update
The SAGE library has grown to 95 books which have been donated for your edification and enjoyment. Please sign the clipboard when you take a book and when you return it, put the card back into the book and place it on the shelf.
A must read which has been donated is Oil and Honey by Bill McKibben, well known environmentalist. This is an elegant and deeply inspiring front-row seat in the global battle against fossil companies and intensely local life. It is beautifully written.
