Dial G-O-D

»This is God. I am not home right now, so please leave a message after the beep«.

This is how it will sound if you're calling God. He now has his own telephone number that may be used by people who needs to speak to the heavenly Dad.

Time for reflection

Gods Phone has been ordered by the Dutch artist Johan van der Dong. According to the news agency Reuters Johan van der Dongs aim is to offer the users a chance to immerse in ideas about.

»Leaving a message on an answering machine is like praying: It's a way to organize our thoughts. It's the perfect opportunity for a little meditation«, he says.

The answering machine is being switched on the next coming Saturday. It is located in an art exhibition building in Groningen. However it is not clear if God speaks Dutch on his answering machine.

Gods telephone number is +31.316.4424.4901.

A bit strange type of art if you ask me. I'm not sure that I would like to spill my heart to a (Dutch) answering machine but maybe there really is a need for it. Johan van der Dong have a point in this of course; the religion is on standby and God is not answering peoples prayers anymore (if ever He has).
