Nourishment for Body and Soul

Nourishment for Our Souls…

At Creator we participate in many communal activities.  One of the most important is the Eucharist. We call the meal the Eucharist because we eat and drink in a spirit of thanksgiving (Eucharist means “thanksgiving” in Greek). We are thankful and celebrate the Eucharist as an Easter Resurrection meal. Sunday after Sunday the risen Christ comes to us as God in flesh—hidden in the ordinary food and drink of this world.

and for Our Body…

We often share in fellowship and food.  One dessert that we have recently enjoyed was made by one of our members, Pam, from a recipe she received from a friend from England:

Shortbread Cookies:

3 ounces sugar

6 ounces unsalted butter, room temperature

9 ounces all purpose flour

1 teaspoon kosher salt

Mix all ingredients together.  Press dough together and form it into a roll.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.  Then slice cookies about 1/2 inch thick.

Bake cookies at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes until they start to turn lightly golden on the bottom and edges.


We also enjoy recipes we’ve had for some time.  Here’s one submitted by Janie that is included in our church cookbook:

Vidalia Onion Supreme Pie

1 unbaked pie shell

3 cups thinly sliced Vidalia onions

3 tablespoons melted butter

1/3 cup milk





1 1/2 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons flour

2 eggs, well beaten

Bacon slices

Cook onions in butter until lightly browned; spoon into pastry shell.  Mix milk, 1 1/4 cup sour cream, salt and beaten eggs.  Blend flour with remaining 1/4 cup sour cream, combine with egg mixture, pour over onions.  Bake in slow oven, 325 degrees, for 30 minutes or until firm in center.  Garnish with crisp fried bacon.
