In a desperate attempt to make Sabbath School relevant to the ever-elusive “youth demographic,” Brother Chad, the enthusiastic but slightly misguided youth pastor at Harmony Hills Adventist Church, decided to implement some “radical changes” this past Sabbath. His vision? A Sabbath School experience so lit, it would make even the most jaded teenager reconsider the allure of sleeping in.

Brother Chad’s plan involved:

  • Fog machine entrance: Ushering students in with an appropriately dramatic cloud of artificial mist.
  • Strobe lights: Because apparently, nothing says “learning about the Ten Commandments” like a potential seizure hazard.
  • Live DJ: Spinning “praise remixes” of classic hymns, because traditional hymns are soooo last century.
  • Smoke machine for dramatic effect: Because apparently, one fog machine wasn’t enough.

Unfortunately, Brother Chad’s “radical” approach backfired spectacularly. The fog machine malfunctioned, filling the room with a thick,呛人的烟雾. The strobe lights triggered a migraine epidemic amongst the less light-sensitive attendees. And the smoke machine, well, let’s just say it set off the fire alarm.

The ensuing chaos resulted in a visit from the local fire department, much to the bewilderment of firefighters who were expecting a kitchen fire, not a disco inferno gone wrong. Thankfully, no one was injured, but the experience left students and adults alike thoroughly confused and slightly singed.

Brother Chad, sheepishly apologizing to the fire chief, promised to stick to more traditional Sabbath School methods in the future. “I just wanted to make things relevant for the kids,” he mumbled, his dreams of a “lit” Sabbath School experience extinguished as quickly as the smoke machine.
