It has been said:
“Legacies are the footprints we leave behind after we die. Legacies are the fruits of a life well lived.”
“Legacies are the passing on of our stories, values, love, wisdom and blessings to future generations.”
What is Legacy Writing?
Legacy Writing is the opportunity to tell your story, impart your values, life lessons and wisdom. It is also the opportunity to share your love and blessings with family and future generations. The main purpose of Legacy Writing is to communicate to family and loved ones what matters most in your life. You have a legacy worth leaving future generations.
You’ll learn ways to document your unique legacy in a four-part weekly series to be offered on Tuesdays, October 8, 15, 22 & 29, from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon in the Raphael Room. No previous writing experience is necessary. Legacy Writing is writing from the heart, and however you choose to write your legacy is the right way for you. Join a Legacy Writing Circle and acknowledge and share the power of your life experience.
The circle will be led by parishioner Mary C. Myers, Certified Legacy Writing Facilitator, spiritual director and retired chaplain.
In her words:
Having spent over forty years in ministry, many as a Board Certified Chaplain in acute care, hospice and outreach to the marginalized, story has been the constant at the heart of my work. All the ways I have shared, listened to, empowered, celebrated and lived story have prepared me for the important work of Legacy Writing.
I am passionate about Legacy Writing and creating ethical wills because I have seen the gift it is to writers as well as their loved ones, whether shared in the midst of life or at the end. We are story-telling/story-catching people who make sense of our lives and our place in the world through story, and through story we are able to share our deeper meaning, the essence of Legacy Writing.
