Christmas Soldiers of Compassion_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Why the Salvation Army deserves our supportYou are soldiers of compassion
on the front lines of despair.
You are armed with love and mercy
with an aim to truly care.
You're a band of brothers, sisters
marching to a different drum,
making music with your service,
giving hope to helpless ones.
You are General Booth's descendents
with a uniform desire
to reach out just like the Savior
to the poor, displaced and tired.
When we go about our shopping,
we can hear the bells you ring.
But as coins clink in your kettles,
God himself begins to sing.
May you sense the Father's presence
as you serve in Jesus' name.
Let the Spirit crown your efforts
though the world denies you fame.

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.
