God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

Reflections / Gedanken


AGM’s always sound like long meetings with boring topics – a pain in the neck for most of us. Well, I attended two yesterday and both went smoothly and in a professional way without wasting time or rushing through important issues. Well prepared might be the secret of it.
It is amazing to listen to the chair of the HOPE Cape Town Association just giving her report and suddenly things almost forgotten from the last year come to mind again – the last year was indeed full of action and development.
It seems we also get the balance between the HOPE Cape Town Association as the working body and the HOPE Cape Town Trust as the body safeguarding our finances right and slowly but surely things are falling in place, thought about and prepared and sometimes even fantasized about years ago. It is a great feeling to sit in such AGM”s and seeing the process having a meaningful outcome – and, this is not less important: all responsible are agreeing about the way forward.
So Friday was a very good day for HOPE Cape Town Association and Trust and after the blessing of a new home for friends followed by a great supper I went to bed with a smile on my face.

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.
