    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 'Calls: $10,000 a minute.'

    Seeking out the pastor he asked about the phone and the sign. The pastor
    answered that this golden phone e 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? Why?"

    The pastor, smiling benignly, replied :

    "Son, you're in Boston , Massachusetts now, home of the Boston Red Sox,
    the Patriots, Celtics, Bruins and Boston College ! "

    You're in God's Country, it's a local call.
