O Holy Pez

December 30, 2005

Pez ClownOne night in bed, waiting to fall asleep, I was contemplating my dissatisfaction with my spiritual state. The thought crossed my mind, “I should ask God for a dream.” But before I had a chance to fall asleep, I saw an image, like a pre-sleep dream.

I was in a dark chamber. The floor of the chamber angled down, and I could see a green world through a large opening. Somehow I knew I was in the mouth of a Pez container. (Kay asked, “What kind of Pez?” I hadn’t thought to look. It was a clown Pez. I suppose this means it’s not taken seriously by the establishment.)

I was thinking about this the next morning. What am I doing inside the mouth of a clown Pez? Then I felt God saying, “Don’t worry that nothing is happening right now. The Pez is coming behind you soon, and when it comes, you will be thrust out. You don’t have to will it to happen. You don’t have a choice. You are called.”

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.

  1. I am not sure about the dream Jon, but its posting certainly possesses a strong force field. I have already attempted to post twice in order to add a pun of limited meaning to others (something along the lines of “it could have been worse, you could have dreamt of being inside a Piez container”), only to have the comment disappear into the rare atmosphere of blogdom and the internet.
    Best wishes for 2006 to you and the family.
