March 5 : Mysterious Lent with the Rev. Carole McGowan at Epiphany Church, Socorro. Come to Epiphany Church, Socorro on March 5 for a day of exploring the Mystery of God and how mystery novels can deepen our spiritual thinking. Studies show that mystery novels are a favorite genre and that the deductive thinking involved in reading them has an impact on our theology. There will be discussion of  A Trick of Light by Louise Penny, meditations by the Rev. Canon Carole McGowan, quiet time, a ‘mystery lunch’, and plenty of fellowship with other women from around the diocese. We’ll start at 8:00 with fellowship and end by 3PM. Registration is $25 to cover lunch and supplies. You are encouraged to read the book, ahead of time. It is available on Amazon and elsewhere. Registrationonline or download the form
