Get ready, world. The Pope's visit is about to be overshadowed by the biggest religion story of early autumn. Yes, friends, it's time to reveal the lineup of 2016 Celebrity Bloggers. Scott and Tim have the goods in the latest episode of Monthly Madness!
We bid farewell to several retiring Celebrity Bloggers, whose jerseys are now hoisted to the rafters in the LentDome. We also welcome five new Celebrity Bloggers: Anna Fitch Courie, David Hansen, Beth Lewis, Hugo Olaiz, and Derek Olsen. Please note we now have two doctors and a nurse in the house in case of medical and/or spiritual emergency.
As usual, the Supreme Executive Committee urges you to show that you love Lent Madness (and Jesus) the most by spending your hard-earned money in the Lentorium. In addition to the standard mug spiel, they are hawking Meet the Saints, a family storybook published by Forward Movement about the saints of the church. Check it out -- it's part of a free, downloadable curriculum for congregations in which children, youth, and adults can learn more about saints and how Jesus' light shone brightly in women and men through history. Get yours now, for free, using these links for children or youth/adults.
Most important, mark your calendars for All Brackets' Day, November 3, and get ready to stare at your browser at 8:00 am Eastern time as the Lent Madness 2016 bracket is unveiled. It's not too early to queue up for a good seat by the computer.
