Rev Geo Downer
Persistent in the exploration of Truth, Rev Geo (no dot, no period, world without end) has demonstrated passion and celebration within the spiritual experiences from the teachings of Unity. He rejoices in the deeper exploration of spiritual transformation and sees Unity teachings as a way to surpass shame-based attitudes and the limiting religion of his youth. He imagines ongoing continual openings in our lives so that we might all live in bountiful blessing. Unity offers a refreshing flexibility not commonly found amongst much of organized religion. Rev Geo’s answer to serve Spirit-within resulted in a wide array of adventures from Mississippi to Texas to New Mexico to Hawaii. Leadership and ministry began for him in June of 2011, and he envisions spiritual community beyond the boundaries or limitations of what we once knew as church. Seeing the transformative power of God, present in all of life, Rev Geo is called to serve at his island home on the windward side of Oahu. He continues ministry with Unity Windward in Kaneohe, HI with no dot, no period, and a whole wide world without end!
