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 "$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, Tulsa, 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

Texas. Upon entering a church in Midland, Texas, 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

Texas now......It's a local call."
