07-10-2002 - DREAM - THE CHURCH -
by Dee Finney
I was living in an apartment with some other people. Some were black and some were white.
The black man was a gay preacher who was denouncing being gay. I told him, "You can't be anything that you are not. - you have to be who you are."
But he was going to be a non-practicing gay - in other words, - celibate.
He left the room to go change clothes and I was sitting by myself with my notebook and writing began forming under my pen (called automatic writing), putting down an outline of what the new church would be that I was to start.

9-20-02 - DREAM - I was busy cleaning my house, doing day to day chores, cleaning up after the kids, and i decided I needed to go for a walk.
I went past a huge Lutheran church, which was packed with people who were all standing and singing. I was amazed at how popular this church was and wondered why.
I kept walking and came to a lake shore where there were no people, just tall green trees with rays of sunlight coming down through them. It was so peaceful there. There was no sound, no noise - just peace.
I suddenly started to feel like I was being filled up with the most intense emotion and the thought came to me - the church I had walked past was OF GOD, and this feeling I was being filled with was that of being commissioned to start a church FOR THE PEOPLE.
I headed home filled with this tremendous calling and walked back into the house which was full of relatives. I really needed to talk to someone about this and my relatives had so many problems, they couldn't be bothered with my questioning.
So I went to find a telephone to call someone and all I found was a toy children's telephone in pink, blue, and yellow. The one ONE I could talk to o that that type of telephone was GOD.
