Movin’ Together – Thanksgiving 2019

Tool of Thanks

 

by Sara Vogt - November 27, 2019

Our new saying for Movin’ Together is to fend our immune system and fight the disease. Hopefully the more we fend our immune system the less we will have to fight the disease!

Saying thanks is used as an informal expression of gratitude, appreciation or acknowledgment. How does having an attitude of gratitude in our relationships benefit us physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally?

When we use the Movin’ Together tool of thanks there are several benefits we can experience such as a stronger immune system, lowering blood pressure, less stress, improved sleep, more joy and optimism, and expressing more positive emotions. All of these benefits improve and strengthen relationships.

Being thankful to God and others assists us in giving grace to the people in our lives that we love and appreciate, and even to the stranger we meet in our journey called life.

Let’s find out how the tool of thanks helps us as the Movin’ Together team visits with our good friend Kathleen Schnell at the Cottage Glassworks Studio – the designer of the Movin’ Together glass piece.

Like Movin’ Together Kathleen also has tools that she taught the team how to use. She explained each tool as following: The breaking plier with spring-loaded jaws is to release pressure easily when breaking glass along a score. The running plier with an adjustable screw could help you decide how much pressure you apply to the glass. They do a good job on straight cut also curves. Grozers, are pliers used to finish glass in a controlled manner. They are dual-purpose pliers, with a flat jaw that is used for breaking out scores and a curved jaw that is used for grozing flares from the edge of broken glass. Another tool that the Movin’ Together team used was a pistol grip glass cutter.

Kathleen’s note about the process of glassmaking is as follows: To create fused glass art we design with compatible glass so that when it is fired in the kiln it will not break apart.

Glass is designed, cut and layered; glue holds the design onto the clear base so it can be kiln fired. We may use many tools in the process to cut & shape the glass: a glass cutter, pliers, glass grinder, and/or omni-directional saw. A piece of copper wire is formed into a hanger, wedged in between layers of glass and topped with a piece of Murrini or another decorative piece to cover the wire ends.

Our Moving Together pieces are placed in the kiln on a “release paper” (so it will not stick to the kiln shelf) and fired to approximately 1400 degrees. The fusing process takes approximately 7 hours and the cooling period at least that long before it returns to room temperature.

Next week we will be giving away a Movin’ Together glass piece for you to enjoy – and to remind us to keep moving with a heart of thanks.

Next time on Movin’ Together Pastor Rhonda Spencer will be sharing about her journey through cancer.

Thanks for joining us for this Movin’ Together Broadcast and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
