VST Mourns the Loss of Dr. Sallie McFague

Sallie McFague’s Memorial Service
For Sallie’s many friends and colleagues, details of her memorial service to celebrate her life have now been confirmed for Pacific Spirit United Church on Saturday, January 11, 2020 at 2:00 pm.

Vancouver School of Theology announces with deep sadness the passing of Dr. Sallie McFague today in Vancouver, BC. Sallie was Distinguished Theologian in Residence at VST since 2000 and the author of many books and articles in theology. She was the Carpenter Professor of Theology at Vanderbilt Divinity School from 1980-2000. Her theological work in metaphorical theology earned her an esteemed place in the theology of the 20th century, especially in her 1982 book, Metaphorical Theology: Models of God in Religious Language. In recent years, her research focused on ecological theology; her recent books included Blessed Are The Consumers (2013) and A New Climate for Theology: God, the World, and Global Warming (2008). VST extends our sincere condolences to Rev. Janet Cawley, Sallie’s partner. Arrangements for a service celebrating and commemorating her life will be forthcoming.
