    A minister dies and is waiting in line at the Pearly Gates. Ahead of him is a
    guy who is dressed in sunglasses, a loud shirt, a leather jacket, and jeans.

    St. Peter addresses this guy, "Who are you so that I may know whether or
    not to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven?" The guy replies, "I'm Joey
    Shasta, a retired airline pilot from Pittsburg."

    Saint Peter consults his list. He smiles and says to the pilot, "Take this silken
    robe and golden staff and enter the Kingdom." The pilot goes into Heaven
    with his robe and staff.

    Next it's the minister's turn. He stands erect and booms out, "I am Joseph
    Snow, pastor of Saint Mary's for the last 43 years." Saint Peter consul ts his
    list. He says to the minister, "Take this cotton robe and wooden staff and
    enter the Kingdom."

    "Just a minute," says the minister. "That man was a pilot and he gets a silken
    robe and golden staff. How can this be?"

    "Up here, we work by results," says Saint Peter. "While you preached, people
    slept; while he flew, people prayed."
