The website gives this quote from T. Canby Jones, professor emeritus of religion and philosophy, about the religious understanding which is the foundation for Wilmington’s Quaker character:

“The Quaker conviction that something of God is found in everyone is the source of the Quaker concern to teach. Every student is a teacher and every teacher a student because each hungers to be taught by the voice of Truth speaking through the other. We expect to be taught by a Teacher greater than ourselves who may well speak through anyone present. Isaiah 30:19-21 expresses it powerfully”

Service Hours: Weekly Wednesday Worship is held in the meeting house from 12:15 to 12:45 every Wednesday and features a different speaker or religious representative from the Wilmington College Community each week.
Sundays in the meeting house the Campus Friends hold the traditional, unprogrammed  Quaker form of service at 10:30am, in which worshipers gather in silence and speak when they feel moved by the spirit.
