Rev. Canon Timothy M. Dombek
Bookmark and Share
Rev’d Canon Timothy M. Dombek, is unusual among main line clergy for his understanding of the importance of personal mystical experience, and how it can contribute to the vitality of traditional worship. Canon Timothy first became interested in Near Death Experiences while serving as a chaplain during seminary CPE training when he read the book, Closer to the Light, by Dr. Melvin Morse. Since then he has read extensively in the area of NDEs, and got to know Rev. Howard Storm after reading his classic book on his NDE, My Descent into Death. Howard Storm led a Quiet Day at Timothy’s church on the first Saturday of Advent 2016, and the next day shared the story of his NDE with the larger community in an open talk given at Advent Episcopal Church. Canon Timothy hopes to begin an IANDS chapter in the Northwest Valley of Phoenix later this year, meeting on Sunday afternoons at the church.
