Friday Five: Dreams
With the beginning of my college teaching semester I have been having some unusually intense and memorable dreams lately--especially related to my Women and Religion class. With the beginning of a new calendar year many of us are engaging with dreams of another kind: planning, brainstorming, setting intentions or resolutions, etc. And many churches will celebrate the baptism of Jesus this Sunday, reading the Gospel account of his vision of the Holy Spirit as a dove and the "beloved child" words of Godde that set him off on his mission sharing Godde's dream for the world. So let's take a few minutes on this (where I am at least) lovely snow-blanketed Friday morning and share about the many different dreams and visions in our lives.
1. Do you tend to daydream?
2. Do you usually remember your night dreams? Do you find them symbolic and meaningful or just quirky?
3. Have you ever had a life changing dream which you'll never forget?
4. Share a long term dream for one or more aspects of your life and work.
5. Share a dream for 2010....How can we support you in prayer on both the short and long term dreams?
Bonus: a poem, song, artwork, etc. that deals with dreams in general or one of your dreams.
