him is a guy who's dressed in sunglasses, a loud shirt, leather
jacket and jeans. Saint Peter addresses this cool guy, "Who are you,
so that I may know whether or not to admit you to the Kingdom of

The guy replies, "I'm Peter Pilot, retired AirTran drinking pilot
from Houston." 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.

Joseph Snow, pastor of Saint Mary's in Pasadena for the last 43
years." Saint Peter consults 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, and I get only cotton and wood.? How
can this be?"

"Up here, we assign people by results they got," says Saint Peter.
"While you preached - people slept; while he flew ---- people prayed!"
