01.07.2010 What happens..

…if I am silent and not blogging? That is the question I am more frequently asked. Well, the answer is very simple: I either do work I don’t want or I cannot tell about in the moment – there is a lot about confidentiality in the life of a priest – or I really take a break from the internet 🙂

Pope asks priests to get online, spread the Gospel

It is good to know that the Holy Father supports blogging:

21.11.2009 A party, a future deacon and Konrad…

A long day draws to an end – ending with a party to celebrate the beginning of summer. Thanks to Monika & Bernd for a wonderful evening, even the wind and the clouds could not stop us drumming and eating and drinking and chatting a great eve long. It was good to see people again, catch up and simply make new friends. A perfect end of a day which began with meeting somebody who will be ordained to be a deacon in two weeks time. This will be a special occasion for me as it marks an end to a way I had the pleasure to accompany as a spiritual director for some years now. And amazingly, being a spiritual director does not mean a one-way-street; having done this now not only once it was and is always a sharing, which includes the spiritual director. I always learned in advising somebody in a big way myself  – giving is receiving; this is so true as I experienced again and again.

And then the email from Konrad, making me aware of a double negative I used in one sentence of  a one of my blogs and making so my sentence unknowingly to the opposite I really wanted to say. Thanks for that, you creme de la creme volunteer :-), and for all who will find the sentence with a “don’t” and a “not” in one sentence concerning my view on sexuality: please scrap the first “not” and the sentence is right!  🙂 Ach ja, Konrad, we are missing you also… very much so… 🙂

And there was another highlight today: I was invited to write about “Aids in Africa” for a publisher’s academic compilation (University of Trier) and today I could file the finished script after receiving confirmation that my writing was appropriate for the intention of the publisher. It feels good to file away what one has accomplished in the knowledge one has done well.. 🙂

So –  a good day, and a throughout the day working internet connection – what else does one need to go to bed as a happy chappy..:-) Good night

15.11.2009 Still confused

Coming back from a brief retreat I am still confused and frustrated to being threatened by a London law firm about the contents of  two of my blogs. It feels like money reigns over truth. Nevertheless, I will wait and see. At the end, so I always hear, will the truth prevail. It should not take too much of my energy in the moment. I am awaiting the content of the complaint from the law firm directly and then I will decide how to follow-up on it. I have altered the two blogs concerned until further notice and me seeing the essence of the complaint.

This all should not stop me from continue working for the cause of HOPE Cape Town and writing the blog to continue networking with all readers and interested people. I still hope to being able to do this with WordPress, but I am also aware that they cannot judge such matters and being themselves subject of a complaint, might react and suspend the blog. If this happens then please check: http://www.stefanhippler.com – there will for this eventuality  be a notice where to find the continuation of the blog.
