For Pete's Sake_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Why I hope Peter Jennings' search for God paid off
The world tonight is still in grief.
A newsman loved is dead.
Toronto-born, Pete made his home
where we all live instead.
He smoked for years. He quit too late
and sadly died too young.
But when he gave his last newscast,
he’d reached his craft’s last rung.
Success’s ladder leaned his way.
But I could sense he longed
to find good news within a world
that daily bled from wrong.
In the name of God he searched for Him.
I pray he reached his goal.
For though Pete Jennings lost his life,
he has a timeless soul.

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.
