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!

Focus on Hope

Presidents promise hope. But so do school teachers, great explorers, and great speeches.

In 1980 Bruce Springsteen released “Everybody’s Got a Hungry Heart” and it was a huge hit.

John F. Kennedy brought hope by inspiring man to fly to the moon, which they actually accomplished.

Throughout humanity, people bring us hope through their words. But hope without purpose is somewhat empty. You can accomplish many goals in life and it can still be meaningless. That’s why God gave us HIS WORD!

We can desire to win a race, raise good children, or move into our dream home. Ultimately TRUE HOPE in life can still be missed.

The most powerful message is out there. It is found in the SON OF GOD! Jesus came to RESTORE us to our heavenly Father — and that message comes very clear when you begin to explore the words found in the Bible.

In the Gospel of John, Jesus addressed this issue of the heart to a the woman at the well who had many questions about life, too.

John 4:13-14 Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

I encourage any reader to find out what it means to pursue a “relationship” with Jesus.

I have personally found that living my life with these Bible teachings in place has changed my life’s goals. Hope is now woven into every day of my life!
