Lunar Communion

On Sunday, July 19, 2009 at the 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. services, Webster Presbyterian Church holds this year's commemoration of the first manned lunar landing.
Buzz Aldrin, the LM [Lunar Module] pilot and a ruling elder of Webster Presbyterian Church at the time, requested a few moments of silence during which he invited all who were listening to reflect on the significance of the lunar landing and to give thanks in his or her own way. For Buzz Aldrin, his act of thanksgiving was to celebrate Holy Communion on the surface of the moon as an extension of the Webster congregation, with the chalice and communion elements given to him by the church before he left Earth.
