Near-Death Experiences… The Significance – Rev. Dick Dinges @ VBI
The knowledge that can be gained by a study of near-death experience has become mainstream, and this knowledge is having an impact on Christianity. In his talk Dick will share his perspective on how the church will be affected, and what church leaders can do to keep their churches learning and growing. Attendees will be encouraged to share what they know about NDE to shorten the time when Love will be the only standard.
Dick Dinges is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, having served seven churches over 26 years. Currently he is a volunteer minister at Fellowship of the Inner Light in Virginia Beach, and he works full-time as a Hospice Chaplain with Heartland Hospice, a job he has enjoyed for the last 15 years.
