Dr. David L. Chancey's picture

A minister died and was waiting in line at the Pearly Gates. Ahead of him was a guy wearing sunglasses, a loud shirt, leather jacket and jeans. St. Peter addressed the guy, “Who are you, so that I may know whether or not to admit you into the Kingdom of Heaven?”

The guy said, “I’m Joe, the taxi driver in New York City.” Peter consulted his list, smiled and said, “Take this silken robe and golden staff and enter the kingdom of heaven.” Joe the taxi driver went into heaven with his robe and staff, and Peter turned to the minister. Read More»
