Local Kids Learn Stop Motion
The Friends of the Mansfield Free Public Library sponsored a Stop Motion Animation class for kids age 5-14. Kim Furry instructed the class on techniques from flip books to short animated videos.
Stop motion animation is a technique used to make static objects come to life on the screen. This is created by moving the objects in small increments and photographing each movement. Beginners take 12-24 photos to make one second of video. The participants learned the concept of frame, how it turns into a cycle, then a sequence and becomes a story.

Movin’ Together – Your Best Shoe Forward
They say you should never judge someone until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes. You better hope they are the right fit, or you will be in for a painful walk!
In our day-to-day lives, shoes may seem like a simple commodity, but they are foundational to our health.
Today, the Movin’ Together team met with Nancy Brooks, owner of In My Shoes store in Wellsboro, and discovered how important it is to choose the right shoe. In this video broadcast, Nancy helped Sara, Lauren and Julianna step into shoes best for their feet.

Back to Basics: Unconditional Love
Asaph was an Old Testament leader of God’s people. He wrote many of the Psalms, including Psalm 73 — where he details the frustration he felt when he observed that the wicked always seemed to prosper:
“And the righteous always seemed to suffer…”
This frustration led to despair as Asaph cried out — that all of his good behavior and careful living was done in vain. But, toward the end of the Psalm, Asaph’s tone changed.
That’s the very same thing that happened to Katie and me. As we sat in the car wondering what we had done to deserve this loss, we realized God doesn’t owe us anything at all. He created us — like everyone else — for His own glory — and yet, we had rejected Him by choosing to sin. Even though we tried to live for His glory, we were both still guilty — as all men are — of disobeying some of God’s commands. Yet, despite our rebellion — God sent His Son to take our place. On the cross, Jesus was punished by God for sins we committed. Christ, (the innocent), stood in place of me, (the guilty) – and you know what He never asked?
“What did I do to deserve this?”
Thankfully, as Katie and I sat in the car, we were reminded of what we really deserve — and we realized we’d already been given so much more! Asaph came to the same conclusion in Psalm 73. By the end of the Psalm, he said those famous words:
Psalm 73:26 — “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” (ESV)
