New Life Episcopal Church

Wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome here!


We were a mixed group visiting West Texas. We had been invited to a Texas steakhouse by Texans. Branding irons and steer horns were the decor. We sat at a big table. The waitress came, “What’ll ya’ll have?” Orders were taken. A man at our table, the last to order, spoke in a loud voice, “I’m a vegetarian!” The room went silent. Forks stopped in midair and the discomfort was palpable. People stared. We drew a collective breath but the waitress didn’t miss a beat, “Just you wait a little minute and I’ll be right back with our vegetarian menu.”
