Abstract

Author shows that Sunset Spiritualist Church and Camp and Inter-Faith Ministries, two Kansas religious organizations, are more similar than different. They differ in their methods towards creating the utopia future that they both desire. They are both similar in their common goals, use of language, in having a relationship with multiple religions, and as religious organizations trying to improve the conditions of the world. Although Inter- Faith Ministries is not a religion, like Sunset Spiritualist Church-Camp, they are both revitalization movements.
