King for a Week is an honor I bestow on blogs that I feel are making a valuable contribution to my faith and the faith of other believers. It is a way of introducing my readers to blogs that they may also find interesting and edifying. Every two weeks (or so) I select a blog, link to it from my site, and add that site’s most recent headlines to my right sidebar. While this is really not much, I do feel that it allows me to encourage and support other bloggers while making my readers aware of other good sites.
This week’s King for a Week is Les Davey de France, a blog run by Alan Davey. There is a whole genre of blog that is largely biographical–an author writing about his or her daily existence. This is often what people think of when they hear the word “blog;” they think of angst-filled teenagers writing about how much they love South Park and how much they hate their parents. I don’t read a lot of these biographical blogs even though, thankfully, they are not all so negative. But every now and then one catches my interest and Les Davey de France is one of these. Alan says this on his blog: “In 2005 Alan, Pat, Gwilym & Catrin Davey moved from North East Wales to 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).” I find it really interesting to read his blog and to see how he and his family are settling into France and how they are seeking to minister there. It’s good to get a glimpse into the lives of people who are serving and ministering in a whole different culture.
In the coming days you will be able to see the most recent headlines from this blog in the sidebar of my site. I hope you will make your way over to the site and look around.
I continue to accept nominations for King of the Week. If you have a site you would like to nominate, feel free to do so. Thanks to all who nominated this week’s honoree.
