Do you have an up-to-date Will? A new study suggests that over 50% of Canadians die without a Will, and about 25% of those who do have a Will have one that no longer reflects their current life situation.
A Will does many things: it can secure provision for your family when you’re gone; it can include personal directives such as funeral arrangements and final wishes; it can name beneficiaries, whether they be friends, family members, or charitable organizations.
Your Will is a testament to what you valued in this life. When thoughtfully crafted, your Will can ensure that a portion of your assets continue to make a positive impact for many years.
As Christians, we are called to practice good stewardship of our possessions as a way of following Jesus. Jesus teaches us in the Gospels that what we do with our possessions matters. Being good stewards of our time, talent, and treasure also brings us joy, peace, and the knowledge that our lives are making a difference.
As Christians, we can peer into our own mortality with the hope and faith that comes from knowing that death is not the end of the road, but a new beginning.
On Sunday, June 3, Michael Cassabon– who works in the Diocesan Stewardship Department – will be our preacherat the 10am service and will speak about estate planning as a spiritual exercise that brings us closer to the knowledge of Christ and his Resurrection. Following the service, Michael will join with other panelists to lead discussion and provide information about making decisions for your Will and legacy giving.
Please join the Stewardship team for this lunch and discussion.
