I traveled to the Former Soviet Union 5 times (1992, 1997, 2007, 2011, 2015) for more than a year total time, to visit and document Spiritual Christian communities. While visiting nearly 100 Spiritual Christian congregations around the world, differences between the often confused faiths became clear to me.

My summary findings here and at are updated as time permits.
