les Davey de France

Alan and Pat live and work in Bordeaux. Alan is a pastor and Pat was a nurse. Now we work with UFM worldwide. Read on! (If you'd like to know what took us to Bordeaux, then start with the archives from September 2004)

Morning in the Quartier Euratlantic

It's a beautiful day in the Quartier Euratlantic.

Meanwhile the government has taken the following steps regarding the spread of the new coronavirus:

1) Schools and universities are closed from Monday.

2) Meetings of more than 100 people are banned.

3) In meetings of fewer than 100 people : rigorous handwashing, no physical contact and 1 meter distance kept at all times.

Bordeaux meanwhile has closed its central library and all its concert halls that hold more than 100 people as well as pools, sports centres etc.

Pat had a routine medical appointment yesterday and her doctor told her to stay at home and not to go to restaurants, cafés or cinemas.

(We broke that rule and popped out for lunch at the newest salad emporium that has opened up just down the road. Well, it was our 27th wedding anniversary.)

The Conseil National des Evangéliques de France has added to this the strong suggestion to avoid sharing the communion service and no meals together until restrictions are lifted.

So this Sunday Bordeaux Church will meet physically in our usual place and we'll look at the possibilities for life online, perhaps with online Bible studies, prayer groups and sermons and shared playlists for songs and so on.
