The popular Lenten devotional series Lent Madness returns again this year, and beloved son of GTS, Bishop Jackson Kemper, is one of this year's nominees - and he has made it into the second round. His match-up is today, March 20th, and voting runs through the end of the day. Visit today's match-up page to vote: http://www.lentmadness.org/2015/03/bernard-mizeki-vs-jackson-kemper/#more-4967. Lent Madness is a Lenten educational and devotional series, intended to promote awareness of the lives of people commemorated in the Episcopal Church's calendar of saints. Each day during Lent, two saints match up against each other, with biographical information, stories, and even "saintly kitch" presented. Everyone is allowed a single vote for the saint each day who most moves you, or is simply your favorite!
On March 4th, Bishop Jackson Kemper is matched up with Margery Kempe. Bishop Kemper was named a trustee of GTS in 1820, and later served as missionary bishop in several states in the Midwest, eventually serving as Bishop of Wisconsin.
