Praying with Mother Liberty
With Liberty we lift our hands
beseeching God to bless our land
and guide our leaders to a place
where righteousness prevails.

With Liberty we stand erect
although ashamed and circumspect
about the countless times we've failed
to stand for what is right.

With Liberty we raise a flame
confessing that we are to blame
for how we've bowed to tolerance
and closed our eyes to truth.

With Liberty we dodge the tide
that splashes us from side to side
and keep our heads above the fray
that harbors culture's lies.

With Liberty we clutch a book
without concern for how we look
when critics see us with God's Word
and simply roll their eyes.

With Liberty we lift our eyes
and look into the spacious skies
to seek God's vision and His peace
and focus on His grace.

Greg has done it once again. He has convicted me of a multitude of sins. Greg has a nack for such. I appreciate his work. I appreciate his devotion to our God and to fellow believers. I wish that I could be drop-shipped to Washington state so I could hear him preach.

Thanks again, Greg

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.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
