Sycamore: What do you believe?
How can we find happiness? What’s the meaning of life? Is there a God? Does prayer make a difference?
The Shrine is delighted to showcase the faith exploration series, Sycamore, presented by Fr Stephen Wang (www.sycamore.fm).
Sycamore is an informal course about the Christian faith and its relevance for life today. Each session involves a short film and discussion questions to get you thinking.
The 10 sessions will be broadcast daily on the Shrine’s livestream from Wednesday 29th April until Friday 8th May, with each episode shown at 10.30am and then repeated again at 4pm:
- Session 1: The Search for Happiness (Wednesday 29/4)
- Session 2: The Existence of God (Thursday 30/4)
- Session 3: A God Who Speaks (Friday 1/5)
- Session 4: Who is Jesus? (Saturday 2/5)
- Session 5: The Holy Spirit and the Church (Sunday 3/5)
- Session 6: The Bible (Monday 4/5)
- Session 7: The Gift of Faith (Tuesday 5/5)
- Session 8: The Power of Prayer (Wednesday 6/5)
- Session 9: Finding True Freedom (Thursday 7/5)
- Session 10: The Meaning of Love (Friday 8/5)
Sycamore was designed for groups to use in parishes and chaplaincies, which is why there are “Pauses for Discussion” built into the films. Whilst we are in lockdown you might want to consider watching the session at the same time as a friend or relative and calling them at the discussion point to consider the questions asked. Or if you prefer, you can simply watch and ponder the questions yourself.
Presented from locations around the UK, the resources include testimonies and street interviews about the challenges of living out the faith. The films will help enquirers who are curious about what Christians believe. They will also help committed Christians deepen their faith and learn about the riches of the Christian tradition.
Fr Stephen Wang is Senior University Chaplain and Vocations Director for Westminster Diocese and Sycamore is a UK Charity (“Sycamore Roman Catholic Charity”, CIO Number 1182843).
