Thanks for being part of the Refill this past year – and for all the encouragements. Here’s a special seven for this special season! Merry Christmas!

1) The Innkeeper – Moving spoken poem from John Piper.

2) Merry Christmas, Sir David – If you’ve been watching – or will be giving – Blue Planet 2, then this is an interesting Christian engagement with David Attenborough’s atheism, the world around us, and the question of suffering.

3) The Salvation of ‘Napalm Girl’ – The little girl whose photo came to capture the horrors of the Vietnam War has a remarkable story that took a significant turn one Christmas Eve.

4) ‘Meet the Nativity’—and Be Free from Fear – The final four-minute episode of the social media focused mini-series, Meet the Nativity, went live on Monday. If you’ve missed them or you just want to watch again, you can watch them all back-to-back here. Great for sharing.

5) This guide to 14 cathedral nativities is a festive delight – Surprisingly hilarious commentary on nativity scenes in British cathedrals!

6) Dave Walker’ Guide to Christmas Letters – Still need inspiration for your family Christmas letter? Look no further!

7) Diagnosing the Home Alone Burglars’ Injuries: A Professional Weighs In – Ah, just brilliant!
