A cloudy and foggy morning turned into a bright and beautiful sunny day.

 

The Synod church service took place at Lakewood church in NJ.

  

Los Angelese Pastor Enn Auksmann talked about how Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin celebrated the first and only Lord's Supper on the moon.  Just hours before stepping onto the moon for the first time, Aldrin radioed Houston Space Center Mission Control and asked for a few moments of silence "to invite each person listening in, wherever and whomever they may be, to pause for a moment and contemplate the events of the past few hours, and to give thanks in his or her own way."  Aldrin then silently read a passage from the book of John "I am the vine, you are the branches.  Whoever remains in me, and I in him, will bear much fruit; for you can do nothing without me."  He then celebrated communion by eating bread and drinking wine from a chalice his church had given him.

 

A luncheon followed the service.
