Visting a Church and Scissors?

Recommended Posts

I recently dreamt my family and I were serving at a church that was not ours. I think we were helping the children there, doing a craft or something. I teach Sunday school IRL. When we were getting ready to leave, I remember walking through this very large church and thinking it was nice and the people were sweet, but it was not our denomination. My family had gone to wait for me in the car and as I was walking to the car, which seemed like a long walk across dirt and grass, I noticed I had a pair of scissors in my hand that I had used in the children's class. I didn't want to walk all the way back to return them, but I didn't want to just keep them, so I threw them on the ground. As I kept walking toward the car, I found two more pairs of scissors that were smaller and I picked them up. I was almost to the car when I thought "they aren't going to miss those scissors" and so I ran back and picked up the scissors I had thrown on the ground. It seems my family was getting impatient waiting on me as I ran to pick them up. I remember they were dirty when i picked them up, too.

IRL, we've been talking about trying out some different churches that suit our two children's needs better than the one we've attended for many years. I think the dream may be related to this and the scissors could represent "cutting ties" maybe? Any thoughts?

yes i can see your association with that,, could the scissors represent something that youre still holding onto from that church, scissors can represent the word of god, is there a word you have let go of? scratching chin something become unclean?

Thank you, dreamster! I think what I'm holding onto is my position as an elementary Sunday school teacher. I feel like they would be in a bit of a bind if I left as I've been in that position for so long now. My two kids don't want to leave the church, since they've been there since they were babies. But we feel they need more than what they're getting from the youth ministry there. Not sure about a word I've let go of or anything unclean. I will pray on it. Thanks again!

ok, dirty scissors could represent a tainted theology in a general sense, probly doesnt apply in this case, a sense of obligation you feel scratching chin ,,yep ur kids would feel like uprooted young plants, nerd ,,and the long term connection provides a security, but as parents you have to progress them from milk to meat, as in the natural.
