Are you looking forward to Christmas break? Why wait? Along with last-minute papers and impending finals comes the need to kick back with a cup of hot chocolate and a restful moment. We’ve collected a few poems for the Christmas season from the archives of His magazine and Student Leadership journal. Oh, and we’ve tossed in a prayer for your studies, too.
What motivated God to be born incarnate — to become human flesh and blood? As Christmas approaches, you might be asking this Good Question too.

Of course, I felt a little like an outsider, but multicultural worship is worth the effort. Here are some ways to expand your experience.
