This week, Tim and Scott come to you live from Accra, Ghana and Stowe, Vermont, proving that the Supreme Executive Committee will go to all the corners of the earth for you, the Lent Madness public. Scott is on a pilgrimage with Episcopal Relief & Development to learn more about their inspiring and transformational work in Ghana. Check out his flickr page for some photos — or follow him on Twitter or Instagram for more. Meanwhile, Tim is on vacation in Vermont, resting up for the onslaught of All-Lent-All-The-Time. Ah, the burdens of the SEC.
In this video, Tim and Scott urge you to purchase Saintly Scorecards (as low as $1 each!) and giant bracket posters (just $9 each if you buy two or more!). Check all that out, and more, in the Lentorium. Also, if you haven’t already liked Lent Madness on Facebook and followed us on Twitter, please do that. And harass ALL your friends until they do the same. Beyond all that, remember that today is the celebration of the birth of Martin Luther King, Jr. He’s one of the greats, though he succumbed to Frances Perkins in Lent Madness 2013 after getting past Martin Luther in the first round.
Lastly, if you decide to use Lent Madness as a fundraiser in your congregation, please do consider sending the proceeds to Episcopal Relief & Development. They’re far too enlightened to be involved with something as silly as Lent Madness, but we think they’re terrific and very worthy of generous gifts to help heal a hurting world.
