Extraordinary New Year in Hong Kong

A banquet on a sports field, riots in the street and a reunion with a former prisoner - the time around Chinese New Year was marked by extraordinary encounters and events for Tobias Brandner. Brandner works as an associate professor of theology at the Chinese University in Hong Kong and part-time as a prison chaplain. He is an ecumenical co-worker of Mission 21 and has lived with his family in Hong Kong since 1996. In his new newsletter, he writes vividly about the growing localism movement, the frustration of the population in the face of political developments in the aftermath of the "Occupy Central Movement," and his work with released prison inmates. He also provides an insight into his private life in the big city.

We thank Tobias Brandner for his multifaceted commitment and his exciting newsletter and wish you, dear readers, a stimulating read.
