Golden Phone

It seems that a young man in Kansas decided to write a book about churches around the country. He decided to start in New York and head west.

He enters a large cathedral in New York and notices a golden phone with a sign that reads "$10,000/minute." Intrigued, he asked the the pastor what the deal was. The pastor explained that this phone was a direct line to heaven and you could personally speak to God. The young man moved on to the next church.

As he went through church after church moving across the country, he saw the same phone with the same sign. Finally, he entered a church in Arizona

. And again, he saw the same phone, but this time it had a sign that read "Calls: $0.25/each." The young man asked the local pastor what this phone was for.

"This is a direct line to heaven, and you can speak directly to God," replied the pastor.

"Yes, but all of the other phones in all of the other churches were $10,000/minute. Why is this one only 25 cents for a call?" questioned the young man.

"Well you're in Arizona

now, so this is a local call."
