The Second Exodus_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Recalling Israel's rebirth 60 years agoIn May of 1948
the Promised Land became a state
as exiled Jews (dispersed) returned
reclaiming what God gave.
From nations of the world they came
united by a common aim.
To build a home and make a life
where milk and honey flow.
It was a second Exodus.
that gave The Jews good cause to trust
a gracious God who keeps His word
while doubters stand amazed.
God used David Ben Gurion
to call the sons of Abraham
back to The Land where faith was born
and Isaac was redeemed.
It truly was a miracle
and in this month we'd best recall
that those who pray for Israel's peace
will know God's sweet shalom.

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.
