Lindy Howe has a great interest in Pulpit Supply. Her latest paper entitled “From P.J.s to the Pulpit” explores wholistic ways one can prepare to be a substitute preacher. Howe has over 20 years’ experience as an Ed Tech III in public and private schools as well as 30 years providing dog sledding educational programs to adults and youth. Her motto is to be prepared at all times- and this includes spiritually. Her soulful exploration of world religions gives her positive insights to various ways of preparing for worship. Her passion for learning and growing in faith is fostered with the Maine School of Ministry. Howe has been a UCC member for 33 years.
Nancy Lewis lives in Marshfield, Maine and has been a member of Centre Street Congregational Church, UCC in Machias, Maine for over 41 years. She has served on almost every church committee over the years, including serving as Co-Chair of the church-sponsored Machias Wild Blueberry Festival. However, she has most enjoyed her tenure on the Board of Deacons where she has worked closely with Rev. Susie Maxwell to help support the spiritual life of the church.
Before retiring and returning to Maine after a brief time away, Nancy was an educator with the University of Maryland Extension. In retirement, she has enjoyed giving back to the community by volunteering– at church, at the area food pantry, and as a member of the local hospital auxiliary. When not volunteering, she can be found in her ever-expanding gardens that have become a great source of peace, joy, and spiritual retreat for her.
