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

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 ‘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, 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 Massachusetts. Upon entering a church in Boston, MA
.. ………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?”

The pastor, smiling benignly, replied :

“Son, you’re in Boston, Massachusetts now, home of the Boston Red Sox, NE
Patriots, Celtics, Bruins and Boston College Eagles! “

You’re in God’s Country, It’s a local call.



  1. THAT WAS WRONG!!! I was getting all sentimental thinking there was a religious moral to the story…lol

    I’d like to say that joke could be told about Tennessee…but I think we’d have a $10,000 phone this year.
