Monday Madness — March 9, 2015

Watch now purpleThis week’s episode of Monday Madness is especially exciting, because Tim and Scott are 7,000 miles apart. Tim is still snowed in, whilst Scott is in Kenya on a pilgrimage with Episcopal Migration Ministries. But that’s not all! For the first time ever, the Supreme Executive Committee awards the Lent Madness Medal of Valor for service above and beyond the call of Lent Madness. Tune in to see who won, and why! Also, when you watch this very special episode, you can be present for the creation and first use of a new word: servermageddon.

Scott also models a Lent Madness Purple T-Shirt, and you can own one too! The offer to autograph your shirt is for real. Just attach your request to a $20 bill with a paperclip, and Scott will consider it carefully.

    Hey Tim and Scott, something is afoot! After the last strains of the LentMadness music faded away, the screen (which still read “Monday Madness — March 9, 2015”) suddenly changed to “35 facts about Mr. Rogers” Really. Are the Saints sending a message?

    Not sure your video clip is supposed to look like a cubist video clip but mine does. I’m looking for Friday/Saturday winner and stats…hmmm.

    Is there a name for a longing for two archbishops?

    Seems to me the LEAST you can do would be to award a Special Purple Shirt, perhaps with TWO signatures, with the Medal of Honor…

        Here, Here! I’m with Sue and Peg. Cough up a Lent Madness t-shirt to the “angel” who got the website restored! And a bag of St. Nicholas chocolate coins would also be in order.

    We had our first Lent Madness “campaign speech” during our announcements yesterday. I was really proud when one of our students told the congregation about his favorite saint who is competing later this week in the Saintly 16 round and where to go vote for them. Even better, immediately after the service, I was approached by a woman who wants to campaign next week for her favorite saint. The Madness is spreading!

    I can’t find who won–Balthazar or Cecilia?

    Love the video and the comments on the website about the $20 bill say to me you have have been listening to too much Car Talk. Thanks for the fun and am so happy to learning about all the lesser Saints.

    Funny that the feed from Scott in Kenya seemed better than the one from Tim in Massachusetts
