As the Lent Madness global public knows, the Supreme Executive Committee is very concerned about the health and well-being of fans around the globe. In the next few days, a lot happens. Palm Sunday, the start of Holy Week, is coming right up. People in the US are facing down an April 15 deadline for tax filing. And your allergies might be going crazy with spring.
That's why we are giving away THREE mugs. You can use these for coffee or any other warm beverage, especially coffee (have we mentioned recently that the SEC is fueled by single-origin, fairly traded black coffee?). Rumor has it these mugs work equally well with tea, though scones are sold separately. We have three Frances Perkins mugs available.
As you'll remember, Frances Perkins won the Golden Halo in 2013. She was a lay leader in the Episcopal Church and also served as Secretary of Labor from 1933 to 1945, the first woman to serve in the US Cabinet. These are literally the last three Frances Perkins Golden Halo mugs in existence and are major collector's items in the world of Lent Madness tchotchkes.
Here's how you can win your free mug. Head over to the Facebook page of our sponsor, Forward Movement. In addition to the Lent Madness Facebook page, we hope you like the Forward Movement Facebook page. Anyway, once you get there, you'll see a post from today (April 10) inviting you to like and share the post, along with a comment, story, or photo about your favorite saint. Do what that post says. Remember, like and share the Facebook post from the Forward Movement Facebook page to enter to win.
We'll pick three winners at random. You'll have to give us your mailing address, and you get a mug. It's that easy. Deadline is midnight EDT, April 15. We'll announce the winner April 16. If you don't respond within a day or so to our request for your address, we'll pick another winner. Void where prohibited, must love Lent Madness to participate, etc., etc.
P.S. Tim wrote a book about faith and coffee. We encourage you to read it. Maybe it will help you with ideas for using your new mug. And after you're caffeinated, you can go for a nice, long walk in love.
