Graham's Last Stand_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Paying Homage to the Prince of Preachers
Though quite feeble, Billy battled
to proclaim God's truth again.
He's as brittle as a cracker,
still this Graham has strength within.
He's resilient and determined.
Doctors shake their heads in awe
at this white-haired prince of preachers
who has led the world to God.
Once again he's home at Montreat
after preaching one last time.
This globe-trotting ‘good news’ spokesman
still can make the Scriptures rhyme.
He can still shape moral conscience.
And he will though he retires.
Billy's full-on bold commitment
is amazing. It inspires.
It’s a kind of God-allegiance
too few Christians tend to pledge
in a culture of convenience
where our risks are often hedged.
May our Father bless our brother
as he faces what's to come.
Pray that Bill will keep on running
'til his race on earth is done.

Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009
Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.
