Buzz Aldrin's Statement of Faith in Space...

"One day while I was at Cape Kennedy ... I wondered if it might be possible to take communion on the moon, symbolizing the thought that God was revealing Himself there too, as man reached out into the universe."~ Buzz Aldrin

Aldrin, the lunar module pilot on Apollo 11, was the second man to walk on the moon. 

With the blessing of his pastor, he packed a chalice and communion bread with his gear. 

On July 20, 1969, when he landed on the moon, he read John 15:5 "to indicate our trust that as man probes into space we are in fact acting in Christ." And he celebrated the Lord's Supper. 

NASA didn't publicize this ceremony for fear of atheist protestors. But, none-the-less, the first thing celebrated on the moon was the atoning death of Christ. 

I don't know about you, but that blesses me to the moon and back!

  7. There were so many things that could go the other way in that mission but it did not and the only thing that I can think of is, because God is with them throughout that time.
