In the main, the faith is the same, although there are cultural differences per region.

Unless of course you are referring to the Oriental Communion (with the Copts, Ethiopians, Armenians, etc.) vs. the Eastern Communion (with the Russians, Greeks, Romanians, etc.).  In that case, one of the two is schismatic, in my opinion the Oriental Communion, and many Eastern Orthodox believe that the Orientals are heretics, on at least a few points.

Now, different.  But that was not always so: the EO and OO in Alexandria used the same DL the Copts continue to celebrate, and the EO and OO in Antioch used the same DL that the Syriac continue to celebrate. "Patriarch" Theodore Balsamon "of Antioch," who never set foot outside of Constantinople, forbade that (and the EO foolish followed him) c. 1195.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

not at present, although it exists in Greek (and of course Arabic).

I don't know why you keep stressing on your beliefs regarding the Oriental Orthodox Church everywhere, even here though the OP has nothing to do with the Oriental Orthodox Church.

I don't know why you think that now, not only should I not mention a prominent view in the Orthodox Church, on the OO forum, but also on the convert forum. 

Besides, in many languages (if not every other language), Oriental and Eastern are the same word.  In fact, in English, they mean the same thing.  Therefore, I was clarifying that there is a difference.  Some people may not know that there are two completely distinct communions.

Point taken, and BTW, I was just asking how your post is relevant to the OP. I have no right at all to dictate what you should write or not.

Ok, I understand.  And I apologize if I sounded harsh.

Melodies, calendar, language, style of vestments, tiny differences in the Liturgy... There are many but small ones.

The Russian attraction to the kenotic Christ is seen as a unique expression of Russian spirituality.

I've heard of certain monasteries and churches celebrating the Liturgy of St. Mark on his feast day.
