Rabbi Mark is joined by Ukrainian Christian Volodymyr Grinchenko. He talks about how he grew up in a secular Jewish family in Southern Ukraine but was converted by missionaries which led him on a path to come to America and obtain a a master's degree in practical theology and a doctorate in pastoral psychotherapy.
Together they wrestle with the idea of the concept of evil and why a creator would allow murder and atrocities in the world. On that note, Volodymyr speaks on his family's current struggles living in Ukraine during wartime and how spiritual people should react to war. He covers a number of topics relating to Ukrainian society and religious matters like the topic of religious freedoms in Ukraine and anti-semitism in Ukraine.
They end their discussion on Christmas and what is the spirit of Christmas and how to keep it alive.
