God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

Reflections / Gedanken

Getting excited…

It is amazing – suddenly I realise that I am gone for 2 months – and like adrenalin a feeling of excitement, of expectations, of wonder how to survive the next two months with luxury 🙂 can be felt in my stomach and up my spine. It is physical what is happening now in me and with me – a feeling that I haven’t had in a long time looking at a travel prospect. I also feel already that I will miss Cape Town and my friends and my work and my routine – it is like trying to get a balance between the excitement and the feeling of losing the known fixtures in life.

I am sure everybody going on such a tour has the same feeling – its stepping out of the routine and experiencing a different life style – it feels like being beamed into a different orbit. Well, but first Germany with some visits, a reading at the Bavarian Parliament and farewell to my family…  Amazing how many people have in he last day phoned, emailed, let me feel that they will be with our tour in their hearts and in their minds. This is a great experience. Thanks to everybody showing that kind of emotional connection and friendship.

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.
