G-d's Hotline, Please Leave a Message!
Finally, a phone number where I can speak directly to G-d, even if I do have to leave a message!
Before someone accuses me of blasphemy because of my story, let me say that I am a staunch believer in G-d, I respect, love and pray to Him regularly, however, I also believe He has a pretty decent sense of humor.
An art exhibition opening in the Netherlands will allow people to call a telephone number designated for God - but they will have to leave a message.
Dubbed God's Hotline, it aims to focus attention on changes to the ways Dutch people perceive religion.
This is the voice of G-d, I am not able to speak to you at the moment, but please leave a message.
1,000 messages have already been left for G-d and one hopes that he has an efficient secretary (St. Peter perhaps?) to sort them all out for Him. While the G-d Hotline forms part of the exhibition, the messages do not and will be kept private.
Van der Dong told Radio Netherlands:
"I'm not a pastor, I'm an artist and I won't listen to the messages." [...] "It's a secret between the Lord and the people who are calling."
Personally, I prefer praying privately without a phone as a go-between.
The 'G-d phone line' is planned for 6 months only - then people will have to return to their old-fashioned way of praying.
