A Simple Way to Change
    Our Image of God

    Perhaps the easiest way to change our image of God is to try something that takes only a minute.
    1. Get in touch with the love of God in your heart.
    2. Put a smile on your face that matches that love.
    3. Smile at a person who loves you and allow that person to smile back at you.

    Taking in the smile of someone who loves us is such a simple thing. Yet, it can be one of the most healing
    things in life. A friends smile can heal us if we now that God loves us, just for a start, at least as much
    as the people who love us the most.


    A man in Topeka, Kansas, decided to write a book about churches around the world.
    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 Paris, France, Cairo, Egypt, Hong Kong, in China,
    and around the World, he found more phones with the same sign,
    and the same answer from each pastor.

    Finally, he arrived in Philippines, upon entering a church in Manila,
    the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church, behold
    he saw the usual golden telephone. But this time, the sign read
    Calls: 35 cents.

    Fascinated, he asked to talk to the Priest,
    Father Ricardo Baumberger, I have been in cities all across
    the world 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 priest, smiling benignly, replied, Son, youre in the Philippines now.
     Youre in Gods Country, its  local call.'
