Rev. Richard Dinges, discusses near death experience and implications

June speaker, June 29, Rev. Dick Dinges

James City County Library 7770 Croaker Rd, Williamsburg, VA 23188 11 am to 1 pm. Please join us

The Rev. Dick Dinges of the Virginia Beach Friends of IANDS Board will be our next speaker. He had a spiritually-transformative experience in 1960 that propelled him into the ministry, and he served in pastoral roles in the United Church of Christ for 26 years. During that time he learned about and studied near-death experience, and went through an intense period of discernment. He arrived at the conclusion that the widespread public exposure of near-death experience is an update from God to clarify many truths, among which are that God is Love and we are all God's children.

Dick introduced the topic of near-death experience in churches he served, and continues to spread the news wherever he goes. He currently serves as a chaplain with Heartland Hospice, and is often blessed with the opportunity to share about life beyond with persons who are dying. Dick has written an article that summarizes near-death experience, and he invites interested persons to read the article prior to the meeting. It's entitled "Near-Death Experience and What We Can Learn from It," and it's found at Dick can be contacted at

A donation of $10.00 is appreciated, but not required for admission.
