Communion on the Moon

Forty-six years ago, men walked on the moon. I’m crushed that there’s no Google doodle, but I haven’t forgotten.

Did you know that the first liquid poured on the moon, and the first food eaten there, were communion elements? Buzz Aldrin took a few moments after the landing to celebrate communion:

Indeed, rather than consider the might of man or the glories of humanistic progress, Aldrin chose to pause and behold his God. Rather than ponder the utilitarian use of the mission or relish in pride over what man hath achieved, Aldrin looked back on our planet and recognized that our gifts and knowledge and ability is a blessing from our Creator. In such a moment, the only appropriate response is to glorify God.
