God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

Reflections / Gedanken

18.05.2010 Home again

A safe landing this afternoon without any major hassle – Cape Town is greeting with sunshine and warmth. So nice to be back.
But reality kicks in immediately, the Ball of HOPE needs now intensive preparation. Somebody who has been a Rotarian in the same club some years ago died with 42 years and the family wishes me to do the memorial service. And there is the flight to Johannesburg on Thursday to attend a meeting of the working group for renewable energy of the SA- German Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
No time to get bored or sin in any way… 🙂

Thanks to Fr Wim for being such an excellent travel companion – and I feel, that we have achieved very much in the last 10 days. I am sure Manenberg is happy to have him back as their parish priest – and I am also sure that the German sweets will find a lot of fans in his community. 🙂

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.
