The dream forum failed, relying on individual dreams: a forum for collective dreams would succeed?

    Hi there,

    The premise here is that I would willingly give place in my life to having dreams shared by others (at the hand of the Holy Spirit, the hand of the Holy Spirit between me and other believers). If we shared dreams, we could discuss them together, what it was the Holy Spirit was saying to us?

    I can understand, not wanting to leave people vulnerable to misinterpretation, but if we share the dream and share the interpretation, how can we lose?

    There is definitely a power to dreams, that can be maturely chased.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Those who chase the gifts, tend to grab at false ones.

    The Gifts are given, as the Holy Spirit sees right.

    We have a Signs and Gifts forum where dreams, and their interpretation are allowed. How would this proposed forum be different?

    The difference would be that we are openly declaring we need the Holy Spirit's help, not as individuals, but as a group.

    I actually didn't know about the "sign and gifts" forum (at the time the Dreams forum was just shut down), though now I see that you are right there is a forum already there.

    What do you think? Would the Holy Spirit rather help us as individuals, or as a group?

    (there is a proverb that says "among many counsellors there is safety" (from memory) - I assume many dreams, would be in that vein)

    Maybe make "Collective Dreams" a sub-forum to "Signs and Gifts"?

    I personally am excited to see how similar the Holy Spirit inspires our dreams to be!

    I have been having dreams which I would say belong in a "Collective Dream Sub-Forum", but - and you will find this funny - because their is no such forum, all my dreams are empty?

    I dream of traffic, but I can't tell who is in which car.

    I wait for room, but I don't know whom I am expecting.

    Don't you think the Holy Spirit would inspire us, to share our dream life?

    I continue to have dreams that I could have shared with other people - walking, waiting, etc.

    I think I am being faithful like the woman that wanted justice from the judge - is it hard to set up a forum?

    The Statement of Purpose would be: "this forum is for the express purpose of sharing dreams that are had by all - that is dreams that are collective in nature: the point is to build up character in the Holy Spirit and share God's amazing power to unite us. While you may like to comment on what you think the meaning is, please understand that to keep this forum running we cannot allow cross-interpretation - this is a self interpretation forum only, other people's dreams are off limits. Get a good night's sleep and if you need to raise an issue, raise it privately or with a moderator."

    The Holy Spirit bless this forum!

    You've already been instructed that you can post your dreams in the Sign Gifts forum.

    We have a forum for Signs and Dreams, please feel encouraged to post your dreams there and call on the Holy Spirit.

    Ok. I will start a thread on "collective dreaming", in the signs and gifts forum?

    Sure, that is a great idea.
