Sermon notes on Legacy Giving

In teaching on stewardship, the opportunity to give to God’s work through a Will is hardly every mentioned.  Christian Legacy, a Consortium of Christian charities, has written some notes as a suggested starting point for a sermon, talk or series of addresses on legacy giving.  The notes contain Biblical material, practical advice on how to go about it, and useful quotations about Wills.  Visit the Christian Legacy website for ideas to pass on to your preachers and speakers.
