I dreamt I was trapped in a local conglomo-church -- I wouldn't say which one -- in the big auditorium-thing, and I was trying to escape before the sermon.
I was mortified that I would be recognized from the stage, like, "Brant Hansen is here, everyone -- please stand up, Brant." I could see the local Big Leader Guy coming up to speak, and I tried to leave without anyone noticing that Brant Hansen was leaving.
All the doors were locked around the room. I got desperate -- there was one open! It opened into a leafy neighborhood, and I was home free! -- except I wasn't, because there were huge stone walls around the houses, which I found out were all owned by staff at the church. I was forced to go back into the sanctuary. I couldn't escape, and everyone was looking at me.
What did all this mean?
A lady called: "You're obviously trying to run away from God."
"Well, I actually like God. I was thinking maybe it was because I'm scared people will think I'm a freak when they find out I don't go to a traditional church-type thing. I was thinking maybe it showed my fear that I'll be judged harshly, because I'm in the evangelical public eye, but I see things differently than many of our listeners do."
"Nope -- it just shows you're running away from God."
"Okay -- cool. Thanks."
