August 19, 2021

Instead of our regular Living Light blogs, we are publishing haikus composed by parishioners and readers in July and August, sharing moments of joy or reflection in caring for creation. The invitation is to compose a creation-minded thought or observation in three lines, the first one with five syllables, the second one with seven syllables, the third with five syllables again. Please send us your haikus to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We will publish new ones weekly!

Gazpacho (in Spanish) or Gaspacho (in Portugese) is a cold soup - great for the hot days in August.  It's made of blended raw vegetables, mostly tomatoes, but also, depending on your taste, cucumber, bell peppers, and other delights.  For seasoning add salt, pepper, some garlic and as per your taste spices. The internet is full of great recipes.  Having a Gazpacho, this time of the year, is not only refreshing and cool but also a great way of in-season dining, something that lightens our environmental footprint.
