  1. We are glad that more people are learning about Lent Madness through the media. There are a couple of minor errors in this piece, however. We have had some days with more than 10,000 page views. Since the beginning of Lent Madness 2012, we’ve had over 150,000 page views from over 30,000 unique visitors.

    And Tim’s last name got spelled wrong once.

    C’mon over and visit Lent Madness. It’s fun and holy. How often does that happen?

  2. Thanks for your feedback, Scott. Maybe, I’m dense, but I don’t see a spelling error. And those are the stats we were given. Congrats on your success this year.

    Best,

  3. There is NO scriptural support for Lent nor churches creating “saints” either. Every Believer in Jesus since 30 AD has been a saint and all Believers who follow Jesus’ teachings in modern times are saints.
