Our Virtual Faith Group began out of a recognized need for companionship through a faith group for SCNs and SCNAs that are physically distant from one other. Our faith group has members from California, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Puerto Rico, Washington DC, Kentucky, and Tennessee.

We chose to use the “Zoom” technology so we could see one another during the meetings. It allows us to really see each other and recognize the facial nuances that can affect a conversation: the question, the confusion, the sorrow, and the joy.

Our conversations have been especially important to me over the past few months when we are all staying “healthy at home”. This connection is also an important part of my continuing spiritual growth and an essential part of my Associate relationship. I appreciate the Associate office setting up the Zoom meetings and supporting this technology. I would recommend this virtual option for any of the faith groups during this time that “physical distancing” is required.
