Compassionate Connections 3, photo by Lorian Kennedy

Westwood’s compassion log, housed in the sanctuary, is one way for members & friends to keep in touch beyond candles of concern & celebration.

A purple notebook is located on a stand next to the visitor information table at the rear of the church.

The log is meant to address a gap in compassionate connections highlighted in our congregational survey. Members & friends expressed concern for the well being of folks missing from Sunday services & other Westwood events. And for not knowing when & if there is a need for congregational compassionate responses.

It serves those who prefer to write an entry, rather than light a candle.

It is one way for Westwoodians to share information & updates on behalf of those unable to attend.

The log encourages members & friends to follow up with compassionate gestures & actions.

Westwoodians are welcome to journal an entry at anytime, Sundays & through the week.

Kindly date & sign your passage.

If you are writing for someone else, please ensure you have consent for a compassionate message on their behalf.
