Spiritual

The concept of spirituality has as many interpretations as our planet has people. But generally speaking, Spiritual Wellbeing can be achieved when our core values and beliefs tie us to a sense of something larger than ourselves and empower us to act according to those beliefs.

Students

Much like the First Amendment, Wake Forest neither endorses nor inhibits any particular religious orientation or absence thereof. This approach may help explain why the undergraduate community includes members of 21 distinct faith traditions and the School of Divinity’s study body claims 26.

The Office of the Chaplain includes faith leaders in Christianity, Judaism and Islam, all of whom actively engage with students. Their efforts include organizing meditation and prayer groups; the “Reading Between The Lines” program, in which mentors guide students in thought-provoking, one-one-one spiritual explorations; and serving as liaisons to 15 student organizations.

The Office of the Chaplain sponsors a meditation group that meets three times a week in the Fall and Spring semesters and is open to all, and it helps coordinate the Moravian Lovefeast, a holiday celebration that stresses the brotherhood of humanity. The event is the largest of its kind in the United States, and it celebrates its 50th year in December 2014.
