Something special in Bonn? Thoughts about Bochum? Some words:
Christian, Bonn: In Bonn religion has not been celebrated very visible. No public ceremonies or religious persons , you meet regulary. Even christian feasts like Chrismas or Easter is covered with commerce. And no other religions influence Bonn obviously, except in some areas. Religion is practiced in buildings. Religion is individual. But because of the long catholic history of Bonn, you can find many relicts and institutions like statues or churches (here “Kurfürstliches Kreuz”, Kottenforst and “Kreuzbergkirche”, Ippendorf)… and of course cementeries.
In every tradition of different religions is always a phase of creation, of change and of rising. This is also applicable for Bochum..
– The GENESIS: … brought us the river, the fertile fields and the forrests
– The EXODUS: … brought us the struggle and the fear about livelihood losses by vanishing steel- and coal-industrie… …but let us remain flexible and open for new paths
– The RISING: … brought us the new technologies, education and new fields of work
