A Capitol Phenomenon

A Capitol Phenomenon
The Covenant Triennial turns heads in D.C.

Not far from where Michelle Obama
wakes up every day,
eleven hundred women
have converged to sing and pray.

They have gathered from St. Louis,
San Francisco and Tucson
as well as from Seattle
(in the other Washington).

There are women from Chicago,
Dallas, Nashville and Detroit
(not to mention gals from Boston
New York City and Beloit).

They have joined their hearts
to listen to the Word of God proclaimed
and to protest human trafficking
that keeps young girls in chains

It's a Covenant "camp meeting"
in the middle of D.C.
where the world can hear the heartbeat
of its Women's Ministries.

Transformed for Service
The "unofficial" Triennial hymn

With unveiled faces they are reflecting
God's awesome glory for all to see
They are a mirror of grace and goodness
and of the power by which we're free.

With upraised arms they humbly acknowledge
a transformation from what they were.
God's endless mercy new every morning
is ever faithful, steadfast and sure.

With outreached hands they join with each other,
sisters united in God's great cause.
Theirs is His mission birthing potential
in those now victims of broken laws.

With grateful hearts they worship the Savior
who by His Spirit makes us all new.
We are His body remade to serve Him
in what we say and in what we do.

* the above can be sung to the tune for "Morning Has Broken"

** The theme of TXIII is Reflecting God's Glory and is based on 2 Cor. 3:18 "And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit."

Enjoyed listening to Brenda's message from Triennial live last night. Posted parts of her message on Facebook after the link.

Pastor Greg, do you sing some of your lyrics in your worship services?

PO BOOKS BY GREG ASIMAKOUPOULOS
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
