Learning from the Conflict
As we mark six months of war in Ukraine, what are the lessons we can learn? First of all, Russia and Ukraine have the largest numbers of Christians in Europe. It is tragic that millions of Christians are pitted against one another and are suffering as a result of this conflict. Secondly, from missionary friends working in Ukraine and Russia, we know that much of the narrative in the mainstream media is shallow, superficial, lacking historic context, misleading and dishonest. From my travels and ministry throughout Eastern Europe with Rev Bill Bathman, I learned much of what Ukrainians suffered under communism, particularly under the brutal dictatorship of Josef Stalin.
