Christian Formation
Lent Madness
Lent Madness began in 2010 as a way during Lent to learn about the men and women who have inspired generations of Christians. It’s a straightforward bracket: 32 saints are in a tournament-style, single-elimination bracket. Each day you have an opportunity to vote for your favorite at lentmadness.org. Sixteen saints make it to the Saintly Sixteen; eight advances to the Elate Eight; four make it to the Faithful Four; two to the Championship; and the winner is awarded the Golden Halo!!

During a time of inward reflection and self-examination, this Lenten Devotional gives us time to learn about saints who fall into four categories:
  • Hermits and Healers
  • Sundry Saints
  • Confusion Corner
  • Mostly Modern

Some suggestions to join in Lent Madness:
  • Join Lent Madness on its website, lentmadness.org and subscribe “via email” so you never miss a match-up
  • Pick up a Saintly Scorecard and study up before you vote
  • Like Lent Madness on Facebook
  • Follow Lent Madness on Twitter at @lentmadness

Episcopal Relief & Development Lenten Meditations
As Lent approaches this year, we lament. For, it has been a year in which we have experienced all kinds of loss. You are invited to meditate on these reflections daily and to engage the “Four Steps of Lament,” by resting, reflecting, repenting and ultimately being restored to God and to one another. Many of the authors share deeply personal and painful experiences related to a variety of issues including disease, violence, racial injustice and poverty. You are invited to come to these meditations with an open heart. What you read may challenge you and give rise to unexpected or uncomfortable feelings. If you would like to subscribe to receive these meditations daily in your inbox, please subscribe here. This Lent, may God restore your soul by bringing you into the bright new life that is our Easter promise. And may you continue to know that you are loved now and always.
