Who is the Sovereign Sage?
There is only one "Sovereign Sage". Jesus himself - God in the flesh. All things were created by Him and through Him and He holds all things together (sovereign) - Colossians 1. In addition to being fully God and fully man, Jesus is known for being a wise man and a great teacher (sage).
We strive to embody the Sovereign Sage by operating with wisdom, integrity, and transparency.
