Communion ON THE MOON

It is well documented that 20 years after Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon that on of the first things done by Buzz Aldrin was to participate in a private and personal communion service.

And is was extremely controversial. A famous atheist at the time, Madeline Murray O’hare was suing NASA over Bible reading from Apollo 8. So the radio went silent around the world while Mr. Aldrin had his sacred moments.

Holy Communion
The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements –bread and the fruit of the vine– is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4 [KJV/NIV]), a memorial of his suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26 [KJV/NIV]), and a prophecy of His second coming (1 Corinthians 11:26 [KJV/NIV]), and is enjoined on all believers “till He come!”

Viewed Personally by RevTim on July 20, 1969

I will never forget the late night viewing of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walking on the moon. I was just inches away from our little black and white tv watching Walter Cronkite’s coverage. My dad was fading in and out of sleep. But we were WIDE AWAKE when the actual moment occurred. Just me and pops in our living room experiencing HISTORY together.

Thanks, AMERICA! And THANKS NEIL for the INSPIRATION of over 50 years!
