PHONES IN CHURCH
A man in Topeka, Kansas decided to write a book about churches around the country. Â 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 in the vestibule 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 , Â Milwaukee , and many cities and towns all around the United States, he found more phones, with the same sign, and the same answer from each pastor. Finally, he arrived in Kentucky , upon entering a church in the beautiful Bluegrass region of Kentucky, behold — he saw the usual golden telephone.
But THIS time, the signÂ 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 Â 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 broadly, replied, "Son, you're in Kentucky now … You're in God's Country. It's a local call. "American by Birth – Kentuckian by the Grace of God. And why Kentuckians do go barefoot ……..When you're in Kentucky you're on Holy ground!
