How the church will look post-COVID

Ministry Reimagined

Our world has changed.
So too the means 
to reach the least and lost.
I'm virtually beside myself
midst COVID's mounting cost.

I miss the handshakes and the hugs
of those within my flock.
I long for times within their homes.
But, hey, we'd best take stock.

Has "doing church" as we have done
been one more causality?
Has COVID claimed
both lives and plans?
That's what it seems to me.

Must we rethink
the bottom line
of what we're all about?
Can we discern what's time to go
and what still has the clout?

Is online worship here to stay?
Are chat rooms now the norm?
Will YouTube music take the place
of praise on Sunday morn? 

What's next will likely be a mix
of virtual and not.
We must make peace
with our new world.
Accept what COVID's wrought.

I'm guessing what is past is past.
It seems "new wine" awaits.
So while there's time let's find new skins
before it is too late.

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
