What are possible meanings for dreams of pastors?
As spiritual leaders, pastors and related characters such as priests, rabbis, imams, and ministers can be used in dreams in connection with spirituality, religion, faith, and belief. But don’t stop there, because pastors are also associated with clean living and helping the less fortunate, for example, and dreams have many ways of telling stories using your personal associations and common ones.
For example, pastors are people to turn to when advice is needed, someone to talk to who can help see the good in people and ourselves. In that role, a pastor-character is a mask that a dream puts on an aspect of yourself, that delivers answers or gives advice.
Even if you dream about a pastor you know, it’s still likely to connect with an internal issue—something about your thoughts, feelings and perceptions. The pastor is a mask for what that person means to you.
A dream can help you to digest an interaction with that person or lesson he or she taught you, such as in a sermon. Anything new to integrate into yourself is likely to be dreamed about with some reference given to the source, because a primary function of dreams is to help integrate things into your personality. So the pastor represents something about the person’s influence on you.
A bad pastor in a dream can symbolize something about yourself that resists a call to clean living or self-sacrifice, is hypocritical, or is basically the opposite of what you expect from a good pastor. It’s not to say that you are like a bad pastor—although it’s possible—just that the idea fits the dream-story.
A pastor can symbolize your ability to delve into spiritual life and see into the spiritual world, your ability to minister to others and bring into the world the goodness of spiritual teachings. You are the medium through which the message is delivered, in word and example.
Related subjects can be referred to obliquely, such as in a dream a man has about being told that the pope is coming to his friend Christian’s house and he’s responsible for making preparations, terrifying the man. The dream is about the man’s fear of dying without being ready to go. The pope and the friend Christian are both references to Christianity, and preparing for the pope symbolizes being in the right place before the man dies. He’s an atheist who, deep inside, fears the consequences of being wrong about the existence of God.

What is the meaning of a dream about nuclear war?
Last night I had the most vivid dream that I could remember: I was in a church that was having a garage sale, with a pastor reading out verses about salvation. Upon grabbing the items I had picked out, I left the church, and received an emergency alert notification on my phone that nuclear weapons were launched and detonated in South America, then the Hawaiian Islands, followed by the west and east coast of the USA. A while after, there was a hologram of sorts of someone saying "We tried to warn you!" protected in the city center, followed by a nuclear bomb being detonated above my town.

A rainstorm swept my haunted home away, then I chilled with my childhood pastor
Iv been have been dealing with some pervasive worry for the past few weeks, so the overarching relief and comfort of this dream was very welcome. I've been up for a few hours now, and I'm still riding this dream's relaxing afterglow.
It started with a feeling of dread that I would have to fall asleep in my bedroom, and there were ghosts afoot. I dont believe in ghosts irl but was nevertheless afraid to fall asleep. The home was a lot like my childhood home. Wide wall sized windows looking out over forest and hills.
The rain started and I snuggled up in my dream bed and looked out over the falling rain through one of those giant, plate glass windows. It was extremely vivid, and it felt like I was watching the downpour stream out over the ground below for hours. I had that feeling you get when you've got nothing to do but watch a rainstorm on a sunday with a book in your lap. I had completely forgotten about the ghosts and was just transfixed by the water and rain. It was marvelous.
Then, daylight started to peek through, and I noticed the house was floating downstream. It wasnt scary. I was excited like a kid to see how far the house could go. It ended up floating in the deluge down to a busy city. By the time the sun emerged, the house had come to a rest downtown, and I got out and walked around to see where I was. It was all still an extremely vivid dream.
In this busy mall area, I noticed the pastor of a church I attended as a child. I gave up god and turned athiest about age 18, and for years I held a lot of bitterness and superiority about religion. But when I saw my pastor I was not only confident in my lack of religion but also feeling friendly. Me and the pastor got talking and we reconnected like old friends who were willing to leave past gripes int the past. We talked about our hobbies, which were the same, and I showed him the house, which was now collecting a bunch of curious bystanders. "It washed down from the hills from miles away!" I eagerly told everyone who would listen.
Overall, a very therapeutic dream that I enjoyed in the moment and when I woke. I think a lot of it has to do with my general anxiety over my fears for the future. Im stressing a lot about my salary and inability to meet a romantic partner. I feel now like the dream was maybe connecting my childhood to my adulthood and smoothing the transition in a good way. thoughts? interpretations?

Co-ed group gym shower with husband and former pastor and his wife
Before I get to the dream, yesterday my husband and I were talking about the gym and high school. Her says that because he's a grower not a shower, he hates group showers and never showed in high school after gym.
Also when I was in high school, my church youth group went to a camp. The guys dorm at the camp only had group showers. Sometime after camp I caught my high school boyfriend and other you group boys talking. They said the youth pastor was uncircumcised, which I didn't understand at the time. They also said he had a long penis.
Last night I dreamt my husband and I were at that camp, but it was actually nothing like the actual camp. There was a group shower and the youth pastor from my high school you group and his wife were showing. I kept seeing my husband look at the pastor's penis and then look at his own. When they left us, we kept showing and all my husband could do was talk about how big the pastor's penis was.
This morning when I told my husband the dream he said "I've always wondered what it would be like to be uncircumcised."

Last Night I dreamed of this really cute guy!
My dream was about me going to the beach, there were tons of people. But, as I was entering the beach, this guy who was about my age, keep turning his head and looking back at me, smiling. I decided to get up close to him. I asked if he needed anything: he said no. Then I told him that he was cute
(Surprising, considering how antisocial I am) Anyway, he introduces himself and told me his name was Mason. But for some reason it was spelt “Maso” but I interpret it as “Mason”
We sat down, chatted a few. He was such cute guy, I’ve never had any guy crush on me before. But then he gave me a pile of drugs and turns out the beach was actually a sermon, then the pastor forced us to eat dog food. The dream made a weird turn, we were in Mason’s school? Teacher robots were monitoring the school, they saw me as a threat and started attacking me and— Alright, main point is, I met a cute guy. And I really want go back to sleep.......
