Oasis Haven Family Manifesto
Welcome. This family loves adding new members to its family. We recognise your journey to become part of our family might not have been easy or conventional. None of our journeys were. We want to hear your story and walk with you through any beauty and pain that your future might hold.
You are part of our family now. Kick off your shoes and put your feet on the sofa. Our family is a safe space where we can be authentic, vulnerable and practice courage. Remember, beautiful, flawed, creative human beings live here so you’ll need to practice forgiveness, kindness, honest expression and understanding to get along.
Faith is the foundation of our family. It’s why we open our homes. It’s how we keep our doors open. And it’s the faith we place not only in Jesus, but in one another, that helps us do hard things and help one another pursue our greatest dreams.
We rise by lifting others. We know it isn’t easy to defend the vulnerable, but we know it’s mighty brave to do the right thing, especially when it’s unpopular.
We show gratitude. We cheer for each other. We own our mistakes and learn from them. We laugh lots (often at ourselves). We are always there for our family. We aren’t perfect but we’ll always be a family you belong to.
