What does it mean to be ‘called’ to a religious vocation?

The Church of England began ordaining women as priests in 1994, and in 2015, the Church welcomed its first female bishop. In Sharon, directed by the British filmmaker Jessica Bishopp, the Reverend Sharon Francis recalls what it felt like to be ‘called by God’ – a feeling she admits is ‘hard to describe without you thinking I’m completely mad’ – and why, despite her religious devotion, it’s connecting with people that brings the most meaning to her work.

Director: Jessica Bishopp
