The ministry of the Rev. Stephen F. Dill used to be forged in the turbulent civil rights years when he stood for social justice and spoke against racial segregation. In this choice of sermons — many from his 20 years as pastor of Dauphin Way United Methodist Church in Mobile, Alabama — Dill reflects at the implications of his faith for the lives of individuals and for the life of the world. Robin Wilson, one of Dill’s successors at Dauphin Way, praises “the bold humility” of his message, and creator Frye Gaillard, in the book’s introduction, offers this description of Dill and his sermons: “Almost inevitably, the poetry of his preaching caught the quick of my imagination and quietly, inevitably made me think.” Accurately, the publication of The Poetry of Faith coincides with the 100th anniversary of Dauphin Way. But these challenging and reassuring sermons resonate far beyond those walls. As Methodist educator Gorman Houston put it, that is the Christian faith at its finest, for Stephen Dill has all the time been “a kind of ministers . . . ready to see the church appropriately and not as it used to be.”
