Skipper Hall

The Life and Religious Philosophy a Methodist Minister in New Mexico

Authored by James L Smith

Bryan "Skipper" Hall died in 1989, leaving behind three generations of churchgoers deeply influenced by his work as a Methodist minister. Anyone who knew Reverend Hall was sure to find inspiration in the little baldheaded man who "skipped" with enthusiasm from one project to the next. As a man who brought eternal cheerfulness and energy to every task, Skipper Hall exhibited a love of life and a commitment to humanitarian values that motivated others to do better in their own lives. Skipper's story, told in this book in his own words, serves as a link to life in the nineteenth century, as well as a guide to the changing religious ideas that he explored until his death. His story and philosophy serve as a lesson for all of us in how one person can use religion to brighten the lives of others and make the world a little more humane.
