The Methodists gathered in a corner and prayed.

The Baptists cried, "Where's the water?"

The Lutherans posted a notice on the door declaring the fire was evil.

The Roman Catholics passed the plate to cover the damage.

The Jews posted symbols on the doors hoping the fire would pass.

The Congregationalists shouted, "Every man for himself!"

The Fundamentalists proclaimed, "It's the vengeance of God!"

The Episcopalians formed a procession and marched out.

The Christian Scientists concluded there was no fire.

The Presbyterians appointed a chairperson, who was to appoint a committee to look into the matter and submit a written report.

The Unity Students proclaimed the fire had no power over them.

The secretary grabbed the fire extinguisher and put the fire out.

The Mormons arrived fifteen minutes late to the meeting and so missed the fire completely.
