“The minister of the congregation is directed to instruct the people, from time to time, about the duty of Christian parents to make prudent provision for the well-being of their families, and of all persons to make wills, while they are in health, arranging for the disposal of their temporal goods, not neglecting, if they are able, to leave bequests for religious and charitable uses.” —The Book of Common Prayer, Page 445
So, you haven’t made a will? Join the crowd! In any given year, over 50% of Americans have not yet written one. Nevertheless, you do have a will: the state wrote it for you years ago, but you may not like what it says or how it divides your possessions!
Writing a will is essential if you want to control what happens to your family and your possessions after death!
Appointing trustees and executors, and deciding how you would like your worldly goods distributed gives you peace of mind, and relieves your loved ones of the burden of those decisions.
Each of us should have a Medical Directive and a Will or Trust. Please do not procrastinate. There are wonderful legal resources available in this community. Please take advantage of one.
In this Legacy Month, may each of us take inventory of our end-of-life planning and be found faithful!!
This Sunday we have a VERY SPECIAL opportunity as we welcome Shary Farr, who has spent the majority of her adult life working on end-of-life planning. This is a Sunday YOU WILL NOT WANT TO MISS!!
