Monday Madness — March 30, 2015

purple tvJust because it’s Monday in Holy Week doesn’t mean Tim and Scott take a break from Monday Madness. This week’s action-packed episode includes a review of the Faithful Four and a hint about how you can learn the meaning of the term Spy Wednesday. Scott and Tim also wish everyone’s favorite voter, Oliver, a happy eighth birthday. They also reveal exclusive details about a mug, soon to be available, to commemorate this year’s Golden Halo winner. Actually, you can pre-order it right now.

Lastly, the Supreme Executive Committee hopes that you will do more than vote in Lent Madness this week. You are encouraged to find your way to a local church for Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Great Vigil of Easter.

Don’t forget to make time to binge-watch the entire Monday Madness series at Lent Madness TV.

    I also have a shout-out to “12-Year-Old Megan,” who has added to the intergenerational dimension of Lent Madness with her thought-provoking commentary.

    Most peeps go through withdrawal as they BEGIN Lent,, giving up beer or chocolate.
    Mine begins Friday when we have cast our final votes, the halo is tossed and we have
    no more Tim, Scott, binge sessions of Monday Madness, or Oracle Oliver to greet us.

    This has been a great season and thank you for your Lent gift to the global Lent Madness Comunity!

    I am the cantor on Maundy Thursday, and am doing a solo with the choir not singing. On Good Friday the choir is definitely singing at the 1:00 pm service and possibly the 7:00 pm service as well. And on Easter the choir sings at both the 8:00 am and 10:00 am services as well (fortunately not the sunrise service, or the 11:00 — that’s the bailiwick of our praise band). I think I will skip the Easter vigil service as that would otherwise be too much (although there is a meeting of the Worship and Music Ministry team of which I am a member on Saturday morning, and I will be there). And we are unveiling a brand new sanctuary cross at the 8:00 am service on Easter Sunday so I expect that those services will be even LONGERRRRRRRR than usual! — They are usually pretty long anyway on Easter Sunday! Oh, yeah there is Easter breakfast that the members of the choir can get to between services (but then we cannot exactly be leisurely in eating ……) So yes, I will be at church plenty during Holy Week!

      Let us not forget the Vigil before the Altar of Repose, which I would imagine many of our fellow Lent Madness followers will be participating in.

      And for our choir the Great Vigil is one of the centerpiece services of the year. It’s long but it’s full of music and we love it. (The chocolate and champagne reception afterwards doesn’t hurt, either!)

    Pre-Order? Without knowing who wins? That would be like a Wisconsin fan ordering a mug today and then it turns out that evil Michigan State wins it all. (as if)

      You could always have a grand time breaking it and use the pieces for a mosaic.

        Of course, in my case right now, any of the Faithful Four are fantastic and I’d love a mug with any of their mugs on it.

    Tim, is it your intention to look so somber? or did one of the kids to those things kids do when you are trying to focus on your OTHER job?

    Some of us are on, attended The Stations of The Cross or as some call it The Way of The Cross last night. Will repeat on Friday outside at our town center. Very exhilarating!

    Dear Oliver,
    Eight is Great
    And so are you!
    On a scale of one to ten
    You’ve made this Lent Madness
    One Hundred Twenty-Two!
