    A man in New York decided to write a book about churches around the country. He began 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 per minute."

    Seeking out the preacher, he asked about the phone and the sign. The preacher answered that the golden phone was, in fact, a direct line to Heaven and if he paid the price, he could talk directly to God.

    The man thanked the preacher 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 such phones, with the same sign, and the same explanation from each preacher.

    Finally the man arrived in the lovely Ozarks. 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 preacher.
    "Sir, I have been in cities all across the country and in each church I have found this golden phone and 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 preacher smiling benignly, replied, " Son you're in the Ozarks now. It's a local call."





    see ya
