I write on behalf of the British Region of the International Ecumenical Fellowship.  We have been grateful and honoured to have Ruth as one of our longest-standing members.  I remember when she and Martin joined to create a link between ourselves and the Association of Inter-Church Families.  Because of their great commitment to that …
