In this post-game episode, Tim and Scott chat transatlantically, with Scott coming “live” from Salisbury Cathedral in jolly old England. Responding to cries from the Lent Madness Global Viewing Public, the SEC has awarded the Silver Halo to Julian of Norwich, who lost out to Golden Halo winner Dietrich Bonhoeffer in the epic championship contest. A new set of halos means it’s time for new merchandise in the Lentorium, and Scott and Tim do not disappoint.
You can get your very own Dietrich Bonhoeffer 2016 Golden Halo mug, which you’ll probably want to go along with your mug collection of previous years’ winners. Check out the gallery of available mugs at the Forward Movement website. Because Dietrich was German, and Germans are known for their love of root beer and/or beer, there’s a pint glass available this year too.
And for all you Julian of Norwich fans, can can buy a set of Julian of Norwich 2016 Silver Halo soup mugs! These handy mugs can be used to heat up your favorite soup or giant serving of a warm beverage. You can also use them the way Julian would have, to offer milk to your cats. (The image shown here is a place-holder, and the real soup mug will show Julian, not just a Silver Halo.)
It’s just 338 days until Lent Madness 2016, so many of you will be wondering about nominations for next year’s bracket. Fear not! Soon enough, the SEC will announce nomination-tide, the annual week-long season of nominations. This is the only way to make your nominations for the 2017 bracket! Visit the Lent Madness website every day of Eastertide to watch for the announcement.
