  1. I need to let you know I no longer live in the Albany area. We moved to Myrtle Beach SC. Please remove my name from your mailing service. I wish everybody the best as the future unfolds.
    Thank You.

  2. Hello….I have been to Unity of Key West…..very familiar with Unity….

    They at Christmas have a candle light service…do you do the same.
    Thank you

    • Shannon,

      Thanks for your persistent interest. Sorry it’s taken awhile to respond, but it’s hard to say at this point if and when Metaphysics 1 will be offered again. It’s a class that Rev. Crystal has offered only once so far, and there isn’t currently a plan to run it again in the near future. But it’s not out of the question, especially if there appears to be interest.
      Many blessings,
      Roger Mock

  3. Hi this is Donna Burg. I became a member at the end of last year 2018. I have not been at Unity since November 2018. I will be returning however June 9th 2019 for regular Sunday morning Services. I filled out an, ” I still want to be an active member form”, and sent it in. Could you please check and see if I am still on the active member list which
    I do want to be considered to be an active member. I will see you this Sunday. Could you please just email the answer to me in my private email , you do not need to post it on this website. Thank you so much. See you Sunday.

  4. Rev Crystal, I just want to let you know I am listening. I work every Sunday and unable to attend live. I am so grateful for the recordings on the website so that I can hear the message of love and hope you so beautifully deliver! Thank you & Namaste. ?

    • Hi,
      I was looking forward to listening to the service today, but unfortunately the sound quality was very bad so I couldn’t understand what was being said. It echoed a lot and the volume of the speakers wasn’t high enough. I hope that you can do something to improve that because there are a lot of people who could really benefit from this right now. Thank you for all you do. I miss Unity since I moved to the mid- Hudson Valley and plan to make a trip up once we are all out of our homes once again. ?

      • Karen,
        Thanks for your note. We’re very sorry about the sound quality this morning and will be working hard to improve it for future services. Many blessings to you.

  5. Hi guys,
    I sent a tithing check a couple of weeks ago in the mail, along with a jazz cd for Dennis. Did you get it? I haven’t seen it in my bank statement.
    Thanks! Jen

  6. Hi,
    I am enjoying your on-line Sunday services. They help me to feel connected.
    Can you send me a zoom link for today’s town hall? I realize I might be asking too late but thought I would try.

  7. Sure wish someone could come up with a flag for car or bumper sticker promoting peace and unity in these times instead of nasty political junk incouraging all the craziness…maybe a way to incorporate some income for the church?

  8. Hello Unity Albany– I’m writing from home on this gloriously snowy day (finally!) to express my joy and delight at the new section re Voices from the Community and Natalie Smarro’s post. She is talking about something many of us have felt called to do and be, and I can’t think of a better time and offering than the four gatherings of the random acts of kindness club. YAY! With love– Heather
