About Ruth
  • Education: BA Hons in History and Women’s studies 2i Mth
  • Experience: First time Vicar in post 2 years. Curacy of not quite 3 years.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Use what you can, and give me the benefit of the doubt
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Sermon preached by Bishop of Ebsfleet which encouraged me that God did want me to be a Vicar and not a full time mother (ironic given that he’s a flying Bishop)
  • One of my favorite illustrations: The Song What if God was one of us by Joan Osbourne. Well he was wasn’t he? The Song from a distance by Bette Midler. God isn’t watching us from distance he is intimately involved with us.
  • Family: Husband and two daughters aged 9 and 5.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: They think I’m fab
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: He suspects that they are all secretly written with him in mind (they aren’t)
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Never preach a two point sermon. If you’ve lost them bring the sermon to a close.
  • Books that have had an impact: Sophie’s World Mere Christianity by CS Lewis Simply Christian by Tom Wright Practical theology in Action by Ballard and Pritchard Jesus Christ for today’s world by Jurgen Moltmann
  • Hobbies: Singing, guiding, pub quizzes.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: We are not alone - God is with us and for us.
  • What I want on my tombstone: Ruth Elizabeth Hind, Dearly beloved Wife of A and dear mother to V & E
