Aimee Semple McPherson was one of the most glamorous women in the US in the 1920s.
She must of had the most amazing EEG's to look at. Nothing boring about this diva: Had she drowned? Had she staged the ultimate theatrical stunt? Had the weight of her own fame just become too much? Then one day in June she re-emerged in the small town of Agua Prieta on the Mexico-Arizona border. The term Foursquare Gospel comes from the book of Ezekiel, who saw God revealed with four different faces: a man, a lion, an ox and an eagle "She was a spellbinding speaker," says Sutton. These were no ordinary sermons - they were more like music hall performances. "She had the best actors, the best set designers, the best costumes, the best make-up artists and professional lighting," says Sutton. "She would create these stories, these dramas in which biblical stories would come to life." "She knew how to use dramatic tricks to draw audiences, and so she turned out to be enormously popular. What made her most popular was her seeming ability to lay hands on the sick and to heal them." http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-30148022 http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-30148022 turquoiseb writes: I should point out that I can actually tolerate narcissistic bores. I studied many years each with Maharishi and Fred Lenz - Rama, after all. What I can't tolerate is unintelligent, uninteresting, buffoonish narcissistic bores. steve.sundur wrote : Barry, this is just a guess, but I really think you have too much time on your hands. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <turquoiseb@...> wrote : From: "Xenophaneros Anartaxius anartaxius@...
