Our rabbi speaks

rebe molitva    Boris Grisenko has been the Senior Rabbi (pastor) of KJMC from the very beginning.

Rabbi Boris is also the Vice Chairman of the Ukrainian Interchurch Council and holds an Honorary Doctorate in Theology from CLST (Christian Life School of Theology).

Within the Сongregation, he initiated forms of ministry that were somewhat unusual for religious communities at the time, such as clubs, coffee rooms, outdoor Shabbats (Saturday services) and concerts devoted to biblical holidays. For the first time ever, KJMC began to regularly use original Jewish music that had been developed in the territory of Ukraine in the 18th and 19th centuries during their Shabbat services to praise God. Thousands of people have repented over the years that the Сongregation has been at work thanks to these services.

For the time of quarantine, we got used to masks, social distancing, isolation. And I’m for masks and distancing, but I’m against isolation. Isolation is advised to certain categories of people only. To all the rest, however, it’s ill-advised. Since everything that starts with isolation goes on to inertia and turns into stagnation. Stagnation becomes degradation, and degradation ends up in depression. People start to get the feeling that the whole world is against them and that God doesn’t love them. And we could so get used to this problem-plagued course of our quarantine-pandemic life that it would become normal. But that’s not a norm.

Yeshua is our living way of ascent

During the Passover Seder Yeshua told His disciples, "Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” John 14:1-3

Run away from self-pity!

Add a headingSelf-pity often prevents us from getting God's liberty in different situations and problems. We feel sorry for ourselves when our plans and hopes are crashing. This condition can fuel us in holding a grudge against God and we unable to free ourselves from heaviness and pain. It is difficult for us to accept God's comfort because we are comforting ourselves. A paradox isn't it. But we are comforting ourselves by our own problem: pains, fears, an unfair attitude to ourselves. After all, we might need some compensating equivalent not necessarily sinful but one that is not from God. 

Dangers of godless unity

Some people, in order to feel ok, need to be confronting or negatively judging someone, entering this state of mind gives them some sort of power and energy. Such people often look for comrades and supporters, so they end up involving people around them, influencing them to oppose others too.

We have a choice!

We have a choice

We always have a choice. No matter how difficult the circumstances that we may be going through, no matter what the problem we are facing with and even if we feel strong pressure from within - we still have a choice by God's mercy.
