God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

Reflections / Gedanken

04.11.2009 last day…

Today I will leave Germany and fly back to Cape Town via Frankfurt. As always I have the feeling it is really time to see “my” Table Mountain again and sleep in my own bed. Two more meetings are on the agenda for today before leaving for the airport. And even as it looks rainy and cloudy, it does not look foggy – Munich is known for awful fog and delayed flights in this time of the year.

As always I will sit at the airport and reflecting on the journey and ask myself where I am heading with my life and my work. When I am now home again, the reality of not having the German-speaking communities will kick in with full force. I have to focus on my new life and try to get a sort of rhythm into it. I would lie if I would not admit that I miss the people a bit, the usual Sunday service, the chat afterwards. But as it is with human beings, this will fade away and memories will replace it – fond memories of my time as a chaplain.

HIV, Development and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and social development in Africa has its challenges. You will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa, about politics and whatever triggers my interest. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me. Blogging means to initiate thoughts and discussions and for the writer to formulate what is loosely running around in the heart and mind in need of being sorted and spoken out.
