Pizza for all

Pizza for all Posted by Hello

How about on a Sunday morning, you enter your Church, instead of the usual "Welcome" on the big screen, it reads -

"If your cell phone rings during the service, you have to buy pizza for everyone in attendance today."

That's a change. But cell phones have become a problem for many churches. I read from the Leadership Journal that one of the Mexican Churches have put up the number of the local Pizza Hut up on the screen with the wordings as above.

The journal further reported that some churches in Mexico are using state of the art technology to silence cell phones. Four churches in the northern Mexico city of Monterrey are using equipment developed by defense and military experts to jam mobile phone systems. The signal jamming equipment is packed into two wall-mounted boxes the size of small speakers. One is located beside the altar, the other at the entrance. When switched on before a service, the system causes a "no signal" message to be displayed on the phones.

Cell phone ringing is not a problem in my Church. I hope it's not a problem in your church too.
