Wednesday, April 03, 2019 - Celebrating a legacy through faith and stories

How do you want to be remembered? That’s the question that will be explored at the Lakeview Faith Community Nurse Program’s 14th Annual Senior Health & Faith Day.

The free event is at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church on April 30. It’s sponsored by the Lakeview Health Foundation, Our Savior’s Lutheran Church and Boutwells Landing. Local author Laura Gilbert will present on:  “What legacy will your stuff tell?”

Gilbert lives in Roseville, Minnesota, and wrote “The Stories We Leave Behind.” She said: “Keep the focus on the memories you most hope to leave behind. This way, you learn how to preserve your best stories, free up space and time for now, and avoid leaving a difficult cleanup for loved ones.”

Crystal Crocker is director of the office of evangelization for the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. She will lead a session on: “God’s call to grandparents: Passing on the faith to our family.”

Jennifer Agen is director of the Faith Community Nurse Program. She said: “There is a lot of interest about the idea of ‘simplifying’ and planning the legacy we would like to leave. This year’s Senior Health and Faith Day examines that idea through our stories, our stuff, and our faith. People will leave better equipped to identify the most important parts of their life story and know how to pass those on.”

Therapeutic harpist Tami Briggs will also lead a session, Dona Nobis Pacem (Let there be peace).
