The Golden Phone

Recommended Posts

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

round 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 with a sign that

read, "$10,000 per minute."


Seeking out the pastor, he asked about the phone and the sign.


The pastor answered that the 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, Salt Lake City,

Denver, Chicago, Milwaukee, and around the United States, he found more

such phones with the same sign and the same explanation from each pastor.


Finally, the man arrived in the great state of Texas. Upon entering a

church, behold, he saw the usual golden telephone. But THIS

time, the sign read:


"Calls: 25 cents"


Fascinated, the man asked to speak with 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 use it to talk to God....


But in 20 other churches, the cost was $10,000 per minute.


Your sign says 25 cents per call. Why is that?


The pastor, smiling kindly, replied: "Son, you're in Texas now and it's a local call."
