The Rev. Justin Grimm has taken going to the people to an all new level with his program "Beers and Hymns." The sessions replace traditional pub songs with hymns, yet include no prayer or worship services. The program started as an experiment in April to see if people would enjoy sipping on a beer while singing hymns. And the sessions Grimm started with the promise of being just beers and hymns, "nothing churchy" have continued to attract dozens of people from all walks of life.
