On August 11th Fr. Benjamin would like to have donuts and coffee with any parents, Godparents, or grandparents with children under high school age. This will be a meeting to talk about Christian education and children's participation in church. Childcare will be provided.

Please mark your calendar for August 13th at 7:00 p.m. at Volume One Gallery; 205 N. Dewey St., Eau Claire. Mary is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and completed her divinity studies in the Episcopal Diocese of Eau Claire, Wisconsin where she was ordained to the permanent diaconate in 1983. This discussion will explore joy as more than a high point or single event. Instead It embodies a range of experiences and passages that shape us through pleasure, achievements, doubt, and loss. From setbacks to success, marriage to divorce, or illness to health, life encounters can shut us down or open us to a transforming experience of satisfaction and peace. This reading and conversation will address the question, “What does a joyful life look like to you?” The author will introduce joy as larger than pleasure and more than a goal. You’ll want to come and enjoy this spiritual evening while supporting one of CCC’s own.

"I understand landscape as embodied history. Stories abound from the places carved by channels of water, and plants and trees arising from soil, where creatures dwell. Inspiration comes from memories, dreams or reflections of contact with nature."

Joe has a BFA in Art from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (1999) and a Masters in Landscape Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania (2004). Joseph draws from a deep commitment to ecology and love of place. His work as a team member with Hargreaves Associates Landscape Architects included design on the London Olympic Park and landscape design projects in NYC; then as a Graduate School teacher for 4 years in the Department of Landscape Architecture at University of Pennsylvania he refined skills that he brought home to his Mid-Western roots. In 2006 he collaborated with New York based Public Artist Mary Miss on a large scale public art and landscape project at Arlington Sewage Treatment Plant in Arlington Virginia.  In his home of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, where he works as project design coordinator for Next Step Energy, a renewable energy company, Joseph spends regular time as a member of a community garden and prairie enthusiast. It is here that his work has recently taken bloom. In 2013, he designed a pavilion that stands in the Eau Claire’s Forest St. Community Garden. In Fall Creek, Joe designed a new Butterfly Pavilion for Beaver Creek Reserve which will open in spring of 2019. He has also directed, produced and shot a documentary on native remnant prairies for The Prairie Enthusiasts. Joe was awarded Artist in Residence at Christ Church Cathedral in Eau Claire for 2018-2019.

The first group of pavers have been laid in the courtyard!! Justin skillfully planned the lay-out of the pavers and then installed them. He did such an amazing job! We are profoundly grateful for all his hard work…and his willingness take on such a huge project! The next time you see him, please tell him how much we appreciate his work on this lasting legacy. Thank you, Justin! We are deeply grateful! If you haven’t gotten a chance to look at them, please take the time to do so. If you missed the chance to be a part of it, don’t worry, there will be another group ordered to be ready for fall. Please call the church office if you would like more information. There will also be another mailing going out in the next few weeks. Remember….every brick tells a story…..and without yours, the story is not complete.
