Phones in Church

Disclaimer: This post is not meant to be theologically valid. It's just funny. Don't be offended.

I received this email from Susan and thought those fellow Kentuckians out there would appreciate it. Enjoy!


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 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 Kentucky , upon entering a church in Louisville, Kentucky . . . 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 Kentucky now ...... You're in God's Country, It's a local call."

Bible Memorization

I know I said I was going to put up pictures soon....and I will. I just haven't had the chance to get them all off the camera. Don't give up on me. They should be coming. I vow to have them up at least before February, hopefully next week.

I wanted to put up this short blog about a program I've been using lately to help me memorize more Scripture. http://www.biblememory.us/. The program sends emails right to your inbox 6 days a week with a link you click that takes you to their website. On the website, you do certain drills to help you memorize a certain verse of the Bible each week. There are other customizable options, like choosing what translation you use, but it's a simple and convenient way to memorize Scripture. You can also choose to receive it as an RSS feed. And if you're like me and you check your email nearly every day, it's a great way to be held accountable too. So start memorizing!

I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.
Psalm 119:11

We're back in TayHoss

We made it back safely to Texas. Traffic was a breeze and it only took us a little over 13 hours to make it home. We made GREAT time. I did catch Grandma's cold and have been fighting that for the last few days (this is my first day back to work) so I haven't uploaded any pictures yet. Sorry. Check back in for another update soon! Everyone enjoy the first weekend of 2008!
