Topic: The First Meal on the Moon

July 20, 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the landing on the moon. A major milestone in human history. As Neil Armstrong noted, as he stepped on the lunar surface, “One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” What was the first meal on the moon? It may surprise you to know that it was bread and wine in a one-person celebration of the Lord’s Table. As Neal Armstrong respectfully looked on, fellow Apollo 11 astronaut, Buzz Aldrin, a Presbyterian elder, marked the momentous occasion by celebrating Holy Communion. Bill Federer, historian and bestselling author, tells Jerry Newcombe about this and other key facts as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon-landing. www.americanminute.com
