Earlham is a crossroads college. We are a meeting place for differing religious beliefs and practices that is constituted by four overlapping communities:
- A Quaker Community
- A Multi-Faith Community
- A Rational Community
- A Community of Dialogue
Students come to the Office of Religious Life for support in differing ways: some come seeking a deeper connection with their faith traditions, others seek to explore alternative spiritual paths; and still others need assistance discerning the inner foundations of their outward commitments.
The Office of Religious Life supports and encourages students by providing guidance in contemplative inquiry, opportunities for dialogue, sponsoring celebratory communal events, and supporting a host of opportunities which enable students to put their most cherished beliefs into daily practice.
Chris Stedman, Executive Director and Coordinator of Humanist Life for the Yale Humanist Community and the author of Faitheist: How an Atheist Found Common Ground with the Religious, will be the speaker at the January 28, 2015, Convocation.
