PHONES IN CHURCH

A man in Topeka , Kansas decided to write a book about churches

around the country. He started by flying to San Francisco and started
working

east from there.

Going to a very large church, he began taking photographs and making

notes.

He spotted a golden telephone on the vestibule wall and was

Intrigued with a sign, which read 'Calls: $10,000 a minute.' Seeking
out the pastor

He asked about the phone and the sign. The pastor answered that this
golden

phone is, in fact, a direct line to heaven and if he pays the price he
can

talk directly to GOD.

The man thanked the pastor and continued on his way. As he continued

To visit churches in Seattle , Denver , St. Louis , Chicago ,

Milwaukee, and around the United States , he found more phones, w ith
the same sign,

and the same answer from each pastor.

Finally, he arrived in Mississippi, upon entering a church in

Meridian, Ms.

behold - he saw the usual golden telephone. But THIS time, the sign

read 'Calls: 35 cents.'



Fascinated, he asked to talk to the pastor, 'Reverend, I have been

In cities all across the country and in each church I have found this
golden

Telephone and have been told it is a direct line to Heaven and that I

could talk to GOD, but in the other churches the cost was $10,000 a

minute.

Your sign reads only 35 cents a call. Why?'



I love this part.............................



The pastor, smiling benignly, replied, 'Son, you're in the South now .

You're in God's Country, It's a local call.'
