Celebrating the Life and Witness of The Rev. Dr. Gwen Sayler

From Wartburg Theological Seminary: Yesterday we received news of the death of our beloved colleague, teacher, and friend, The Rev. Dr. Gwen Sayler. Today we are a grieving community as this sad and unexpected news begins to settle in. Gwen will be remembered for her fierce advocacy on behalf of her students, passion for preaching and presiding, quick wit, PowerPoint presentations, deep love of scripture, and her seat in worship – to name a few things.

In this time of grief, we draw near to God who is the source of all life and hope. We draw near to one another as we grieve, remember, celebrate, and hold fast to the resurrection promise. Please hold Gwen’s family and all who grieve her loss in your prayers, as we hold the whole Wartburg Community in prayer in the coming days and weeks.
