The Lutheran magazine published an article called “The Hauntmaster’s Dream for Halloween: ‘Bigger, badder, faster, stronger’” (read here) highlighting a Halloween haunted house experience run by a young person in New York.
The ELCA magazine tells how the teen has been “producing the Halloween event for the past four years,” and that “calling the house an asylum lends itself to stunts. 'There’s lots of banging on the walls.'
“The most popular scenario is sure to be the 'Butcher Shop,' noted this Eagle Scout candidate, who likes to give back to the youth group since it was such a big part of his life. 'Last year I used a lot of butcher props on loan from a friend in Warren, Pa., like foam feet, arms, legs, heads, all covered in lots of blood and put on festive decorated trays.'”
We also learn that “School friends and youth group members also play spooky parts, like working a chain saw, running around covered in cobwebs, wielding axes and being the hooded guides.”
But don't worry, the haunted house with all its scenes of blood, gore and killing, meant to instill fear in young and old alike, will give all its proceeds to the church. Jesus would be proud.
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
