The Pastor

We welcome the Rev.Sage Coleas the Cambridge Society's 10th Pastor! Sage was ordained into the ministry of the Swedenborgian Church in 2005, after graduating with a Master's of Divinity from the Pacific School of Religion and the Swedenborgian House of Studies in Berkeley, CA. Following ordination, Sage helped to launch, a new online ministry, serving as their first pastor while also working as a chaplain resident at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, CA. In 2007 Sage left California to serve briefly as Associate Pastor for the Church of the Holy City in Wilmington, Delaware, helping this small urban parish celebrate it's 150th Anniversary. She then returned to her home state of Maine to begin a hospice ministry as a chaplain serving the dying and their families throughout Southern Maine.

In 2011 Sage accepted a call to her first solo pastorate at the Fryeburg New Church, a small thriving congregation in a rural community in the White Mountains. Sage left Fryeburg New Church after serving three years to begin her married life with Ted Cole, Jr. in Anchorage, Alaska. Sage and Ted met at a Spiritual Direction Training in Niagara Falls, ON. In Anchorage, Sage served as Family Minister at St. Mary's Episcopal Church where Ted served as Associate Rector. In the midst of enjoying marriage and shared ministry together, Ted and Sage enjoyed welcoming their first child into the world, Theo born in June of 2014.

Sage is happy to return to the East Coast with her new family, and to return to ministry within the Swedenborgian Church at the Swedenborg Chapel. Trained as a Spiritual Director, Sage feels called to the work of helping individuals and groups discern the movement of the Spirit in their lives and communitites. Sage feels excited to be serving the Swedenborg Chapel at a time of deep discernemnt about the future of the church and it's role in a changing world.
