Mary Luti
Mary Luti
Mary Luti is an author and a sought-after conference speaker, workshop leader, and preacher and was recognized for outstanding teaching by the United Church of Christ at its 2011 General Synod. She served as senior minister of First Parish in Cambridge, Congregational (UCC)—its first woman pastor in 375 years of continuing congregational life. Formerly the Academic Dean, Litu returned to Andover Newton Theological School in 2008 as Visiting Professor of Worship and Preaching and as Director of Wilson Chapel. Her teaching centered on the many ways people of faith have sung, prayed, preached, shaped communities, and handed down the meaningful traditions of the Christian church over the centuries. We are blessed to have her join us.

Judy Brain
Judy Brain
Judy Brain returns to CCWM after having served as our bridge pastor last fall, a graduate of Harvard Divinity School where she was awarded the Billings Prize for Preaching. For 10 years, as part of the Pastoral Excellence Program for the Mass. Conference, UCC, she has led groups for clergy who are in the first years of their ministries. She is also certified in supervision for student pastors and has helped to launch more than a dozen seminarians into ministry. We are so grateful that Judy is free to be with us again and celebrate her warm and wonderful preaching gifts.
