"Dream of Demolition Church"

 
Dear Doves,
This Sunday, Nov 9, 2014 , I woke up from a very vivid dream. It was about 6am, and the dream felt like it had gone on for a while. 
In the dream , I went to a major construction site, that was still in the demolition stage. There was a huge pile of rubble, that seemed to cover many acres of ground. Towards one end of the rubble, there rose all that was left of a building. It was a stack of rooms, each identicle in size one on top of the other.  It looked to be about 100 feet tall, but I knew that it was exactly six stories tall.  There were no stairs or ladders, but there were workmen on each level, and they were all hard at work tearing everything apart. You could see through gaping holes in the walls. The men were rough and dirty and had stern looks. They ignored me and kept at their work. I knew that I had to climb the tower all the way to the top. I did not want to make the climb, because it was obvioulsly dangerous, and the entire column seemed ready to collapse. I began to climb, and it was difficult and scary. As I got higher, the entire tower seemed to sway. Finally I reached
 the top floor, and there were no workmen there. I was all alone. The colors were strikingly vivid and everything was in high def in the dream.  I went to the side wall and looked out through a big hole, towards the west. There was a spectacular sunset on the horizon. What amazed me was the low ceiling of clouds above the sun. They were pitch black and foreboding, and closing in rapidly. As I gazed, the darkness decended until the sun was gone.
Now I was on the ground again and walking around on the huge pile of rubble.  I realized that the tall tower, and the rubble, were all that was left of a huge church. I looked down at my feet, and saw an artifact of some sort. I picked it up and turned it over in my hand,  but could not identify it. I only knew, that it was once considered priceless, but was now worthless, and I tossed it away. 
I woke up, and realized that the dream must have been a picture of the last days Church. I was very disturbed.
