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.
Krista Tippett, the creator and host of On Being heard on nearly 300 public radio stations and downloaded by millions as a podcast, will be the Convocation speaker on January 27, 2016. She is the author of Speaking of Faith and Einstein’s God: Conversations About Science and the Human Spirit.
