McCormick mourns the passing of Rev. Eunice Poethig who returned to God on May 25, 2018. She graduated in the class of 1975 and is survived by her husband, Rev. Richard “Dick” Poethig, a former faculty member.
Before I went to McCormick Theological Seminary I went to Harvard Divinity School to study comparative world religions. I thought I would go on to get a Ph.D. and teach comparative religion. I never thought I would become a minister, because at the time I didn’t even identify as a Christian.
