Where SHE Walked

Aimee Semple McPhersonInitially I was baffled by the meaning of this postcard, and to be honest I still haven’t fully wrapped my head around it. The card references the popular evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson, who was presumed drowned while swimming at Venice Beach in 1926. But a month later she was found in the Mexican town of Agua Prieta, just across the border from Douglas, Arizona. She claimed to have been kidnapped, drugged, and tied-up in a shack, only to escape and endure a twenty mile trek across the desert. But her story raised more questions than it answered. You can read more about Sister Aimee in an article I found at Today I Found Out, my new favorite website.
