Lasting Words: Writing A Legacy From Your Everyday Life
We all need to be remembered, to feel known and know that our lives have made a difference. Most of us have legal wills to distribute our belongings but few of us have considered leaving a spiritual/ethical will. Come explore creating a written legacy to pass on to your loved ones. The presentation will be followed by an optional writing workshop to jump start your own “lasting words”. You will leave with an abundance of resources and the sure feeling that you have a great deal to share with your family and community.
