This is a course aimed at young people to introduce them to and deepen their understanding of the faith and life of the Syriac Orthodox Church, and help them reflect on its place and role in Swedish society. It will seek to make the Church’s faith relevant to young people today by helping them to see the practical applications of their faith. In addition, the course prepares participants not only to receive the tradition but also to be able to pass it on to others. Students will also participate in the liturgical life of the Church.
The course consists of four components:
I The sources of the Syriac Orthodox Church
II The history and faith of the Church
III The Syriac Fathers
IV The Liturgy.
