I had a striking dream of two sisters who lived together:

In this dream there was a house where two sisters lived. The house was big and was used for many things as the sisters served together. There was a great living room where many friends would come and spend time together. There was a huge kitchen where meals were served in abundance and variety, there were bedrooms where guests could rest and stay. At some point in the dream the sisters argued and as they did a dividing wall was constructed in the middle of the house and instead of the house remaining spacious it became two small houses under one roof. The houses were very tall and thin due to the fact that they both had to fit into the original house. There were two of everything – two kitchens, two laundry rooms, two front doors and so on. The sisters forgot the wonderful life filled days of the one big house and got used to living with less space.

This dream was such a noteworthy picture to me of how ineffective and ridiculous the church becomes when division occurs. God’s house simply wastes energy by harbouring division.
