Family mission statement (1996)


Our purpose is to
help bring forth a new heaven and a new earth;
learn about God and ask for his help when things go wrong;
show our love to God and God’s love to others;
help each other love God and other people;
treat all people fairly;
live in a way that cares for the earth and all of the earth’s people;
help each other say no to things that aren’t fair,
that hurt others, or that pollute earth.
Gabriel, Jacob, Joetta and Gerald, January 1996
