Lent Madness kicks off today

Lent Madness kicks off today

It’s Lent, and for some of us, that means Lent Madness. This annual event is in its (theologically appropriate) seventh year pitching 32 saints against each other between “Ash Thursday” and Easter, a project shepherded by the Reverends Tim Schenck (its founder) and Scott Gunn. It features celebrity bloggers, weekly videos, a scorecard, bios and vocabulary lists.

Which saints ends up with the Golden Halo? The voting narrows down 32 saints to one (see the bracket below), and the first pair are: Stephen, the church’s first martyr, and Alban, Britain’s first.

You can find out more at the Lent Madness site (they’re also on Twitter and Facebook):

We can assure you this will be a wild, joyful, educational, occasionally gut-wrenching ride. We’re delighted to share this journey with you. Let the Madness begin!

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
