The Oklahoma Conference Leader Bishop Hayes is returning home after a speaking engagement. When his plane arrives, there is a limousine there to transport him to his home in Oklahoma City. As he prepares to get into the limo, he stops and speaks to the driver. "You know," he says, "I am almost 50-years old and I have never driven a limousine. Would you mind if I drove it for a while?"

The driver says, "No problem."

Bishop Hayes gets into the driver's seat, and they head off down the highway. A short distance away sits a rookie state trooper operating his first speed trap. The long black limo goes by him doing 70 in a 55 mile-per-hour zone. The trooper pulls out, easily catches the limo, and gets out of his patrol car to begin the procedure. The young trooper walks up to the driver's door, and when the glass is rolled down, he is surprised to see who is driving. He immediately excuses himself, goes back to his car, and radio’s his dispatcher. He tells the supervisor, "I know we are supposed to enforce the law, but I also know that important people are sometimes given certain courtesies. I need to know what I should do because I have stopped a very important person."

The supervisor asks, "Is it the Governor?"

The young trooper says, "No, he's more important than that."

The supervisor says, "Oh, so it's the President."

The young trooper says, "No, he's even more important than that."

The supervisor finally asks, "Well then, who is it?"

The young trooper says, "I think it's Jesus, because he's got Bishop Hayes for a chauffeur!"
