God, AIDS, Africa & HOPE

Reflections / Gedanken


5 weeks on the road – coming home means not only being fairly exhausted, but also happy to have achieved most set goals: It also means to  write reports to the boards, to follow-up with those you promised to keep in touch, to sort out the next steps and last but not least to tackle what is already waiting for you since you left your desk five weeks ago.
The process of restructuring HOPE Cape Town also needs decisions to take and discussions to lead and as the year is coming to an end, the annual report for the trust is also waiting to be written, together with a piece for the explizit.net website and an article for a publication commemorating the 150th anniversary of the German catechetical association. Blessings, services and weddings are also waiting to be prepared – so resting is not an option for the coming week.

But I am grateful for all and everybody I was able to see, speak, encounter in the last weeks – it is amazing how enriched life can be when one is in constant touch with people from all walks of life. A special thanks to the Koblenzer AIDShilfe for their preparation regarding the AIDS action day on the national flower show in Germany and for Viola Klein with Andreas Moench, Saxonia Systems, HOPE Kapstadt Stiftung for the HOPE Gala in Dresden – what an event. Dresden you can be proud of your people.

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.
