Christmas Prism 2017

Houghton College is proud and excited to present Christmas Prism 2017. We will gather to celebrate and to meditate upon the coming of Jesus Christ into our world - the One who heals us, who redeems us, and who calls us to live lives of reconciliation and restoration. After centuries of waiting for the Desire of Nations to come, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to live incarnate for us, to die on a cross for us, and to be raised again in triumph. We join in that sense of anticipation and waiting this Advent season - both for his first coming at Christmas time, and ultimately for his second coming, when all will be made new. O come, O come, Emmanuel!

Featuring over 200 performers, our program will include both vocal and instrumental music as well as visual art, spoken word and scripture. In an evening full of mystery and wonder, we will come together as God's family - as Christ's body, the Church. Through traditional Christmas carols, classically inspired pieces and modern worship songs, we will declare together, "Come, Desire of Nations!”
