When astronaut James Irwin gazed at the "blue planet," his home, from the moon in 1971, he realized that the experience was drawing him closer to the God of his youth. After the flight, Irwin realized "the power of God was working in me and I was possessed by a growing feeling that God did have a new mission for me."
