“What Is Our Legacy to Those Who Come After Us?” (04/30/23)

Rev. Mary Murray Shelton

Since we’re here, we know that the Universe chose us—we were wanted, needed, created so that Spirit would be more fully expressed. It’s reasonable, then, to guess that we’re also meant to leave something for others who come later. What would that be? How do we make the way smoother and more available than it was for us? What do we want our descendants, whether genetic or spiritual, to gain from our existence—even if they never know we lived?

This is our luxury: to have time to consider our own legacy. Not so we’ll be remembered or revered, but so we will leave a contribution to Life for others. We’re going to explore this idea today together.
