Worship and celebration
However you choose to worship, Earlham offers a welcoming community that’s ready to celebrate alongside you. Join us at College Meeting for Worship on Sundays, join a student-led worship event, or create your own in partnership with the Office of Religious Life.
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.
Spring 2022 — It’s About Time
Worship begins at 1:00 PM (EST) In-Person in Stout Meetinghouse beginning March 13, 2022
Please wear masks to In-Person Meetings. Masks will be provided, if needed. Thank you for your consideration.
Who or what has impacted your perception of time? Are there religious or spiritual traditions that inform your sense of time? How do you want to spend or prioritize your time? How does it feel when you have too much or too little time? What helps you be present to the current moment? What existential questions does time raise for you?
