Eastern Mennonite Seminary mourns the loss of adjunct instructor Marcus Smucker. Marcus taught in the areas of spiritual formation and pastoral care. Most recently he taught at the EMS Pennsylvania campus. Mark Wenger writes, "Marcus continually amazed me with the range and depth of his relationships and ministry. I knew him best as a wise friend, colleague and beloved instructor for many EMS Lancaster students. But he was connected blessingly in many settings. Some full of conflict, some full of exploration, all full of wisdom and love."
