Worship and Celebration


College Meeting for Worship

The weekly College Meeting for Worship combines quiet worship, readings, music, and a prepared message by a senior student or faculty member. Designed as a semi-programmed Quaker service, each week’s speaker is encouraged to creatively incorporate elements from his or her own religious tradition. Worship begins at 1 p.m. on Sundays in Stout Meetinghouse.

“The Stories That Shape Us”

What role does storytelling play in your spiritual life? Are there stories from a religious tradition or place that influence your beliefs? What narratives from your community or family have you internalized? In what ways can storytelling cause harm? What are the stories you want future generations to learn?
