The Winds of Change in the Vatican (and Beyond)

The foundations of Christ's Church are shaking

The Winds of Change in the Vatican (and Beyond)

The winds of change are blowing
through Christ's Church around the world
as the windows rattle and foundations shake.
Doors fly open unexpectedly.
It's quite unsettling
as we try and come to terms with what's at stake.

Popes resign and pastors struggle
making sense out of their call
as a business model trumps a shepherd's role.
Doctrines once embraced are questioned
and taboos are redefined
as the winds of change begin to take their toll.

Holy Scripture isn't honored
as the sole authority
when it comes to matters of both faith and life.
And the pressure to be tolerant
is much more than it seems
as reflected in who now can be a wife.

When to bend and when to challenge?
Those are questions we'd best ask
as the gale force winds bear down with gaining speed.
If we bend when we should challenge
then Christ's Church will lose its right
to reflect His holy love and timeless creed.

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
