A 1968 Christmas Story

“In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.” Never had human beings read God’s word from so far away. Never had so many people listened. On December 24, 1968, I was a teenager captivated by a live TV broadcast all the way from the moon. My family and I joined nearly one-quarter of all human beings on the earth that night as we turned our eyes heavenward and our thoughts toward God.
