UPDATE: Compassionate Connections at Westwood:
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 at the rear of the church.
The log is meant to address gaps in compassionate connections highlighted in our 2014 congregational survey. Members & friends expressed concern for the wellbeing 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 individual compassionate gestures & actions. Westwoodians are welcome to journal an entry at any time, Sundays & through the week. Kindly date & sign your passage. If you are writing for a member or friend, please be sure you have consent for a message on their behalf.
