When nurses meet together and invite God into discussions about nursing, they experience Jesus’ gift of Christian community. “For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them” (Matt. 18:20). Christ’s presence encourages nurses to grow in love for God, God’s Word, people of every ethnicity and culture and God’s purposes in the world.
Local NCF groups:
Bring hope and purpose to our personal and professional lives.
Provide encouragement and community as we seek to care for others with the compassion of Christ.
Just as coals in a fire smolder when they are separated, isolated nurses are more easily discouraged. Christ offers the precious gift of Christian community, “For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them” (Matt. 18:20).
It is a privilege to know God through Jesus Christ and receive his love, forgiveness, hope and sense of purpose in difficult times. As Christian nurses, we have the honor of making Christ known through our actions and words — among our colleagues, patients, clients and their families.
