creating your spiritual legacy: telling the stories of your life
The most important thing you have to give to anyone is a spiritual legacy. A spiritual legacy is the sharing of wisdom from one life to another, and it is important at any stage of life. Our spiritual legacies are created and shared primarily through stories.
This morning workshop explores the concept of creating and sharing a spiritual legacy. It starts with defining terms, then moves to writing a spiritual will. After that, participants are instructed on how to pass on wisdom and values to others through telling the stories of their lives.
NW Iowa Legacy Partners (NWILP) is a collaborative effort of Dordt College, Hope Haven and Northwestern College. The primary objective is to provide timely and pertinent information to the many generous constituents who have supported these Christ-centered organizations.
