Legacy Video Series

What is your legacy?

For years, Rev. Lindy Purdy, Minister Emerita, has been leading conversations in small groups about legacy. She asks us to slow down, take time to reflect on the things that really matter — our families, friends and communities that give our lives meaning.

We invite you to view this three-part video series featuring Lindy and other WCC members to help you discern, what is your legacy?

Courageous Conversations: Practical Planning for Close Family Members 

In Session one, we look at the gift of information to honor the wishes of a loved one at the end of life, and explore resources that will make this transition more manageable.  Whether you are preparing these documents for yourself or for a parent, sibling or friend, this gift will be truly appreciated when that time comes.

How Do We Want to Be Remembered?

Session Two turns to the softer side of our legacy: the gift of sharing your values, history and faith. How do we want to be remembered and how can we retain “membership” in the communities of meaning that have been so important on our life-journey? The session explores how to capture memories that endure long beyond our lifetime, and how to savor important life milestones and values while we’re still living with those we love.

Legacy Living and Legacy Giving

Session Three wraps up with ideas about legacy living and legacy giving. Legacy Living will explore how to live a life of purpose, as well as information about Ethical Wills. Legacy Giving will explore Planned Giving, which is the opportunity to support organizations by making them a beneficiary of your will or estate plan. For many people, their estate gift may be the largest gift that they ever give to an organization that has given purpose to their lives.
