underwater chapel

in this dream i live in a small town next to a river. A new age woo woo preacher has come to town, and has bought-up some land containing a small backwater area off the main river. He has tons of work done to the area, including blocking the swampy pool off from the river, pumping all the water out, building a chapel in the bottom of the pool, and filling the whole area back up with oxygenated water.

This special oxygenated water has been modified in such a way, that humans are supposed to be able to breathe in it. It's supposed to have all kinds of health and spiritual benefits, which is why he's built the underwater chapel as a gathering place to spread the word about this special water.

On the opening day everyone in the town is invited to come attend a service in the underwater chapel. I arrive late, so i don't have the benefit of getting the introduction to this water - how it's supposed to work, and how best to breathe in it. I park my bike next to the swampy pool, and dive in. It takes a little getting used-to. At first i choke a bit and swallow some water, but eventually figure out that a slow steady breath allows me to get the water's oxygen in my lungs, without the water filling them up. I slowly swim towards the underwater chapel at the other end of the pool.

Upon entering the chapel, i see that everyone is seated in pews and watching a video demonstration about the spiritual benefits of breathing underwater. I don't have a chance to talk to anyone about their experience, but i get the impression that they're all having a bit of a hard time with it, and trying to look like they're calmly enjoying the physical and spiritual benefits. After the video, the preacher talks a bit longer about the underwater chapel, and then invites everyone to the post-service reception to be held above-ground at a local bar and grill. Folks try to seem cosmically enlightened as they scramble over themselves trying to get out of the chapel.

On the boat to the reception, the preacher notices I'm having trouble breathing, trying to get the extra water out of my lungs. He looks at me condescendingly and mentions that he's never noticed anyone wheezing after experiencing his special oxygenated water. I tell him i've had a cold.

At the bar and grill they're serving a buffet, and there's an open bar. Folks are sharing their experiences and ordering multiple drinks, much to the dismay of the preacher. He gets on the intercom and encourages everyone not to have more than one drink, as it affects their spiritual chi. the congregation generally ignores him, as do i as i order my second lemon drop.
