Neil Armstrong

A hero of the last century, worthy to be remembered as a symbol of one of the greatest achievements of mankind: the moon landing on July, 20th 1969.

Before taking the monumental first step, he and Buzz Aldrin shared a prayer and communion together. Aldrin would later say

“It was interesting to think that the first liquid ever poured on the moon and the first food eaten there were the Christian communion".

These men did what seemed impossible and continue to inspire new generations with their great deeds. We should let their simple faith also be an inspiration today; in the midst of a key historic moment, there was time to thank God for all he has done for use and is enabling us to do. We should take the time to do the same in our daily moments too.
