Have you ever heard the Rime of the Ancient Mariner? “Water, water, everywhere, nor any drop to drink.” The image of thirsty sailors surrounded by vast bodies of water may come to mind reading Jennie’s short 1949 post.

A penny for your thoughts … In fact, according to the Indianapolis City Directory for 1949, Jennie was exactly accurate about the number of churches that existed in Indianapolis during her visit. Today, there are 1,343 Yellow Page listings for churches or places of worship in Indianapolis.

Did you know that Martin Luther King Jr. once spoke at the Cadle Tabernacle, featured on the postcard above? If you are interested in learning more about the now razed Cadle Tabernacle, read this Sunday Prayer and this Friday Favorite.
