    Subject: Golden Telephone





    A man in Houston, Texas 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, Dallas, St. Louis, Chicago,

    Milwaukee, and around the United States, he found more phones with the same

    sign, and the same answer from each pastor.



    Finally, he arrived in Oklahoma. Upon entering a church in Tulsa, Oklahoma,

    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 Oklahoma now . . . .

    . . . . . . . . it's a local call."
