God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

pensées of a Catholic priest

06.07.2009 Blogging

Blogging is “in” and so should also a priest allowed to write about his work, his topics, his dilemmas, joys and sorrows.  As I am working in South Africa and besides my parish work, which will soon be coming to an end as the chaplain of the German speaking Catholic Community, I dedicate lots of time into the work in the fields of HIV and AIDS, this blog will obviously deal foremost with these topics. But also the development of the church and politics are on the agenda – a good Christian is also a participating citizen and politics and religion have much in common.

I am looking forward to comments, encouragement and critical comments, but they should at least be constructive. 🙂 If there are fellow bloggers also in the fields of HIV and AIDS or in the circle of religion, feel welcome to make contact. All discussions, which connect different worlds and point of views will bring this world foreward in the best sense of the word.

HIV, AIDS and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and AIDS in Africa is often a challenge. Living in Africa has also its challenges. On the other hand I feel very much blessed having all the three. So you will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa and essential information and developments in the field of HIV and AIDS. And in between personal stories and thoughts. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me - blogs - "thinking loud" so to speak is a ways of communication and exchange of ideas.
