The world is full of good-hearted heathens, those who love people and those who want to do good in the world. They�re not against God�they just have little use for church. Church is boring and hypocritical. �Plus, who wants to sit through a sermon every week? But while organized religion doesn�t appeal to them, these heathens long for a connection to something bigger than themselves: meaning, community, mission.
Pastor Jerry Herships leads a church-ish community full of good-hearted heathens. They may not love church, but they love sitting around a bar talking about what really matters and doing some good for their city�s poorest residents. Herships takes that experience and absolves other former churchgoers of their guilt. No, you don�t have to go to church to love and serve God. Yes, God still loves you and wants to help you love the world.
