Time for Reflection: At the End of the Foundation’s Year
“The secret of Christmas is that
as we seek something great and extraordinary,
our attention is drawn to that which is small and inconspicuous.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Even if we tend to forget it in the stress of everyday life and in the pre-Christmas frenzy, Advent is traditionally a time of reflection. It invites us to pause and reflect – on what has been and what may yet come. In view of the current crises, the latter is more difficult than ever, and what really counts in the here and now is becoming all the more important: connecting with our fellow citizens and those who share in our lives and our fortunes. This is especially true for an organisation like SAGST, whose healing initiatives only become visible via the projects and partners it funds and the institutions it has befriended, as well as by working with service providers and other support recipients.
In this spirit, we would like to express our sincere thanks for the encounters – both large and small – we have shared in 2022 and wish you all the best for the holidays and the New Year.
