The Lent Madness quest for world domination ran through the northeast yesterday as NECN (New England Cable News) did a terrific story about our little online devotion. We encourage you to watch the video and share it with all your friends, relatives, and lukewarm acquaintances. In fact, why not go on ancestry.com and send it to all your long-lost kin?
While the interview took place at Tim's church, St. John the Evangelist in Hingham, Massachusetts, Scott's happy because his smiling face was shown on camera for a few seconds. This means the next time he shows up at a Dunkin' Donuts in Southie and orders a "lodge regulah," he's sure to be recognized.
Why do we care about getting media attention for Lent Madness? In all seriousness, it's a way to share our love of God with those beyond the walls of our churches and show the world that we take our faith, but not ourselves, seriously. In a word, it all points to Jesus.
So make some popcorn, sit back, relax, and enjoy the show! Well, enjoy the show after the obligatory ad.
