Smoke Machine Malfunction: Holy Spirit Lost In The Fog

Describing the experience as “tragic,” local worship leader Axl Johnson found his congregation totally unable to worship as the church’s primary fog machine malfunctioned right in the middle of the Sunday morning set, reports satirical magazine in a fictive article. “We barely got through our new song. It was a real train-wreck,” the pastor said.

The malfunctioning device started to pump out 30,000 cubic feet of water-based fog per minute into the venue. Onlookers said it totally and instantly killed their personal worship experience. “It was horrific,” one parishioner recalled. “One moment I was caught up in the Spirit, worshiping the living God of all creation before His throne, and the next I was brought plummeting back down to earth. The mood was ruined.”

“We’re not losing the Holy Spirit again, not on my watch anyway,” Johnson declared. “We’re a strong group on a life journey together. We’ll pick ourselves up and grow from this tragedy.”

Well, I thought the Holy Spirit only works if there IS a thick fog for worshippers to battle through. I guess I better re-think my theology!
