“If the words ‘happy hour’ seem to have nothing to do with the words ‘Sunday worship,’ you're exactly the kind of person who will enjoy Rogue Saints. If you are holding onto faith with a fingernail—or if you lost it already and don't miss a lot of it but do miss something— then this book may be for you too. And if you think that the best response to the harm done by bad religion is to live well—then you’ll enjoy it too. Don't miss Rogue Saints!”
—Brian D. McLaren, author of The Great Spiritual Migration
“Just let love win. Jerry is one of those special humans that seems to really get it—the ways of the real, red letter Jesus outside of what religion often tells us. Love, kindness, compassion, humility, and humor—it's all there. Rogue Saints is an incredibly refreshing read that is desperately needed in our world today.”
—Sheri Fay Rosendahl, author of Not Your White Jesus
“Jerry reminds us we are simultaneously saint and sinner, called to get out of the pews and into the street because the work of Jesus is not finished; it is to be completed in us and through our acts of service to one another. Jerry is one of the ones I call ‘on the edge of the inside’—neither a ‘company man’ nor a rebel. I support him and his important work.”
—Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Founder of Center for Action and Contemplation
About the Author
Jerry Herships is the founding pastor of After Hours Denver, a faith community of rebels and misfits that meets in dives and pubs to talk God and the Holy over drinks while making PB&Js to pass out to the hungry and homeless of downtown Denver. A former bartender turned comedian, Herships was drawn into ministry after realizing that the connections and conversations he had with his customers were deeper and more real than anything he’d ever experienced in church. He is the author of Last Call: From Serving Drinks to Serving Jesus.

And make sure you stock your bar with some bitters, he seems to favor those recipes.
First, find your own way of connecting with yourself, your community, or god in something that resonates with you. There are several beautiful examples in the book. Once you find that connection relish in it and share with those that may share it.
Secondly, whatever community you become a member of, remember to focus on the service of others. A community shouldn't exist just for the edification of itself. Find a community that helps and loves others, because within that mission your community will grow and deepen.
Jerry thank you for sharing.
Jerry talks about those things that frighten most main line churches and it should. We have been brought up in a society where going to church on Sunday checks the box for us. Why can't we be spiritual EVERY day of our lives? Thanks Jerry for your words and wisdom.
