About Houston Oasis

Houston Oasis is a secular community that meets weekly on Sunday mornings here to enjoy fascinating talks, live music, and conversation. We are part of the Oasis Network of secular communities.

These five core values define the Oasis community:

  • People are more important than beliefs
  • Reality is known through reason
  • Meaning comes from making a difference
  • Human hands solve human problems
  • Be accepting and be accepted

Old Enough to Die

This blog is in response to a call out for Oasiens to submit an article for our community blog post. It’s not often that I draw a blank when seeking topics to write about. However, with this week’s blog that appears to be the case.

Dad and Irene, his first wife, grew up in Sylvester, TX, a small, dusty, West Texas town with no more than a few hundred people in the whole county. Dad never talked about Irene.
