Conversion Story

Posted by James Hahn on

In February I gave this talk at St. Peter Catholic Church in Chilicothe, OH where my brother is the pastor. The recording there didn't work out so I gave it again and this is the result. It's an mp3 format and about 57 minutes long (yeah, I can go on and on). I like conversion stories so I thought I'd share mine with you all. God Bless, Jim

Hoppy Days are Here Again

Posted by James Hahn on

We have a saying at the Old Man's Brewing Company that goes like this, "If the Old Man ain't hoppy, ain't nobody happy." Hop heads know what I'm talking about!

Fun in the snow for A.

Two More Saints

Posted by James Hahn on

This has been the most surreal Christmas/Advent of my entire life. On Friday of the previous week we went to see my grandmother in the hospital. At 82 she had been diagnosed with cancer and there was nothing they could do for her. We spent some time in her room. I had the blessed opportunity to tell her that I love her and say good-bye. She was in okay shape and able to talk and recognize people....
