In today's episode of Monday Madness, Tim and Scott report that the 2016 Lent Madness season is off to a good start. They also announce big news. Big as in you can get your own life-sized St. Francis of Assisi cutout. Wow! Watch the video to learn the details and see the actual St. Francis cutout who might come to your home or church. On an unrelated note, to add even more value to this already priceless video, for those who can't remember the Ten Commandments of Lent Madness, the SEC also shares the first and greatest command of Lent Madness, whilst Scott has discovered the audio effects menu in iMovie. You're welcome.
Yep, that's right. Post your very own mug shot -- that is, a photo of yourself with a Lent Madness mug -- and we'll pick a lucky winner who will receive the Lent Madness 2015 Golden Halo winning St. Francis of Assisi, the very same cutout that was at the Episcopal Church's General Convention last summer and was photographed with countless church luminaries. To participate post your photo on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter and double hashtag it with #LentMadness and #MugShot. We'll pick the photo that best exemplifies the spirit of Lent Madness, and we'll probably share quite a few of the others. Your deadline is March 14, 2016. Enjoy!
If you don't have a mug, you can borrow one from a friend. Or you can visit the Lentorium or the Forward Movement website and buy your own mug. We have Francis mugs, Charles Wesley mugs (2014 winner), Frances Perkins mugs (2013 winner), or always-in-style purple Lent Madness mugs. You can also pre-order a 2016 Golden Halo winner mug, but it won't ship until Eastertide, so it's not helpful for the mug shot context. Anyway, buy the whole set! They're collectible!
