As progressive and post-Mormons continue to leave the LDS church in increasing numbers, many former LDS church members miss the sense of community that they once enjoyed as active Mormons.
Oasis is a network of secular communities that meet weekly (on Sundays), organized according to the following values:
1) People are more important than beliefs.
2) Reality is known through reason.
3) Meaning comes from making a difference
4) Human hands solve human problems.
5) Be accepting and be accepted.
Currently the Oasis Network has two thriving communities:
Houston Oasis: http://houstonoasis.org
Kansas City Oasis: http://KCoasis.org
Also, a new Oasis community is under development in Boston: http://bostonoasis.org.
In this episode we interview the two founders of Oasis: Mike Aus of Oasis Houston, and Helen Stringer of Oasis Kansas City.

Are there any Oasis communities forming in SLC?
This hit home for me. Wish there was one on Orange County CA
San Antonio was mentioned as having some sort of Oasis presence, but I can’t find anything about it on their website or by Googling. Anyone know anything about it?
