50 years ago this weekendr humans walked on the moon for the first time. Buzz Aldrin, one of the astronauts, was an elder in the Presbyterian Church and took bread and wine that had been blessed by his Church, so that he could mark this significant moment by giving thanks to God. He participated in the service of Holy Communion to be celebrated on the moon. We meet to worship God, who created the universe, in the same way when we gather together.

When I consider the heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and stars, which you have set in place... Lord, how majestic is your name! Words taken from Psalm 8.
