Ruth Owen

Director of Religious Education

Ruth is new to First Parish in Lincoln but not to religious education. She previously served U.U. congregations in Ridgewood, N.J. and downtown Boston. Ruth first became involved in religious education because of her then young sons’ fascination with the sand table in the RE classroom at her first congregation. That led to volunteer teaching, committee work and eventually to Meadville Lombard Theological School and a career in religious education.

She lives in Cambridge, MA with her husband Pete and their very spoiled dog. She enjoys reading, knitting, and walks in the woods with her dog. She considers her devotion to the Boston Red Sox to be a part of her personal spiritual practice.
