Second Book In Memory of Late Campus Pastor Published
With Shining through the Darkness: Sermons for the
Winter Season, Shirley Dyer Wuchter ’68, has brought
a second collection of sermons penned by her late husband,
The Rev. Michael D. Wuchter ’68, former pastor to the
university, to life. Wuchter passed away while on a mission
trip to Africa in 2000, and this latest collection includes
his most memorable messages in celebration of the Advent,
Christmas and Epiphany seasons.
During his 17 years at Wittenberg, Wuchter served on the
president’s cabinet and conducted a 75-hour-a-week program
of campus ministry. Throughout his career, Wuchter
was involved in numerous organizations and committees
concerning disabilities, hunger, environmental issues, campus and prison ministry,
refugee settlement, peace education, international service and ecumenical relations. In
1993, he received the prestigious Alumni Association Class of 1914 Award for meritorious
service above what might be expected to any contributor to his alma mater’s welfare.
