Olga Kondyuk works at the Ukrainian Evangelical Theological Seminary. Her husband, Denys, is completing his doctorate at Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic, and teaches in the Department of Missiology at the seminary.
In this video excerpt (16 minutes well spent, with translation), Olga demonstrates the critical importance of polemical theology: “Theology is of paramount importance at this time to help distinguish between good and evil.” She critiques three slogans of Russain propaganda that attempts to justify the invasion.
Olga is an example of a thinker attempting to love God with her mind in the midst of terrible chaos and loss.
Watch the whole workshop with six Ukrainian, Christian women sharing their perspectives about the conflict. Translation provided as needed.
