a positive path for spiritual growth

A Message from Rev. Steve!

Dear Ones,

In the midst of our shared journey of spiritual rediscovery, each one of us has suddenly received what seems like to some us a punch-in-the-gut in an insane world. The ongoing challenges to our beliefs, practices, life as we have known it seem to have no end. So, I ask myself: “Just who have I come here to be in this time and place?”

For me, in a very short time, our Unity of Albany community has demonstrated a deep commitment to coming together in responding to the world’s challenges with spiritual eyes, words and actions. what a blessing to join such a power house of brothers and sisters! This community digs deep into their hearts in embracing what can initially seem like a call for fear, radically accepting what is, and are reaching out to one another….thus bringing a little peace and unconditional, transformative love to a shaken world.

I am SO blessed and excited to join you on this powerful journey and look forward to meeting all of you!

A door has been reached, a threshold crossed. What your mind still would deny your heart cannot.A tiny glimmering of memory has returned. “Come back, come back,” it will say to you. “Come home, come home,” it will sing. You will know there is a place within yourself where you are missed and longed for and safe and loved. A little peace has been made room for in the house of your insanity.
– A Course of Love

Love and Blessings,

~ Steve


  1. Steve– Thank you for these words of faith and reaffirmation, these words that remind us to stay the course and to look at this time with minds and hearts centered in Spirit. Thank you for the great question you have given us to ask ourselves daily (or more often??)– who have I come here to be at this time and in this place? And when I look back years from now, what will I see? Will I see that I walked a path of sincerity, compassion, and love in action? Or will I see that I hunkered down, daunted and disoriented for too long a period of time? That I passed up this opportunity to be the fullest expression of the divine essence that came to be expressed through me, as me and for the world? I am grateful to have you join us as we walk hand in hand (virtually for now) together through this time. THANK YOU!

    Welcome, Rev. Steve to one of the oldest continuously occupied cities in North America, welcome to my dear AlbaNY.

    My name is Beth, and I’ve been a member for three or four years, but attending for a few years longer. Was on the bylaws committee, and I am one of the original members of our ongoing “5/5: Beyond racism, making us whole again” Committee (run now by Dottie Frament). The fraction is a consciousness -raising reference to the 3/5 clause of the US Constitution.

    I’m in Delmar if you need anything. Please feel free to reach out: suterbeth@aol.com.
