I was watching a video on Vimeo this evening about this astronaut's memories of Apollo 9. One thing that really struck me was how he kept talking about the new perspective he got while in space. Seeing Earth as a whole. Suddenly he realized he could relate to all of it. It was all home. And then something he said about when he came back to Earth - the feeling he had:
But there's a difference in you now... between you and everyone else on your planet, because you've seen something that has forever changed you and it's an incredible feeling.
Wow. Have we seen Christ? Have we journeyed beyond this world? As we look at Christ and His love for humanity, suddenly our lives become changed. There's a difference in us. Suddenly we realize that the people on Earth are our brothers and sisters. And they are dying. Dying for that something that has forever changed our lives. What are we doing about it?
