Book collects sermons by UM pastor Stephen F. Dill

The Poetry of Faith: Sermons Preached in a Southern Church, by the Rev. Stephen F. Dill, has been published by NewSouth Books in Montgomery, Ala. The collection’s publication is timed to the 100th anniversary of Dauphin Way UMC, where Dr. Dill was senior minister from 1972 to 1990, and remains pastor emeritus. Frye Gaillard, a Mobile author, edited the book and wrote the introduction, noting Dr. Dill’s eloquence and commitment to civil rights during 40 years of active ministry.

The United Methodist Reporter wants to encourage lively conversation about The United Methodist Church and our articles in the belief that Christian conversation (what Wesley would call conferencing) is a means of grace. While we support passionate debate, we cannot allow language that demeans or demonizes others, and we reserve the right to delete any comment we believe to be harmful or inappropriate. We encourage all to remember that we are all broken and in need of Christ's grace, and that we all see through the glass darkly until that time we when reach full perfection in love. May your speech here be tempered with love, and reflection of the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. After all, "There is no law against things like this." (Galatians 5:22-23)
