Lent Madness

Ever heard of Lent Madness? It's an Episcopal spin-off of March Madness, and invites participants to vote as scores of Episcopal saints go head to head. This year's winner: Francis Perkins, Labor Secretary under FDR and a devoted Anglo-Catholic. You can follow each heat, and learn a lot about these Christian heroes (and people's reasons for preferring one over another) here. To whet your appetite, here's how we got here.
If and when I ever teach my "Preposterous Saints" course again, I think we might do a version of this ourselves!
