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
Bottled water has become a large industry in this and many countries. In Kansas City
we are blessed to have some of the best utility
drinking water product in the country. Consider using a reusable water bottle and filling it rom the tap. It can save money and reduce the explosion of disposable plastic bottles. Thanks for continuing to reduce, reuse and recycle.
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.
