I poured the wine into the chalice our church had given me. In the one-sixth gravity of the moon the wine curled slowly and gracefully up the side of the cup. It was interesting to think that the very first liquid ever poured on the moon, and the first food eaten there, were communion elements.
Buzz Aldrin wrote these words back in 1970 in a Guideposts' article. The reason it was not publicized was because of Madelyn O'Hare's lawsuit against the Apollo 8 crew who read the creation account from Genesis out loud.
With the passing of one of the world's greatest heroes, Neil Armstrong, it is something quite special to realize that that "giant leap for mankind" could never have happened if God had not allowed it. Our genius and our reason comes directly from above. Amen.
Thank you, Buzz Aldrin, for honoring God and honoring the moon through communion.
