【基督徒人物榜】如云的见证 先辈的足迹
  太空人葛兰.约翰氏是一位虔诚的基督徒,据其牧师爱云氏(Frank A.Erwin)称,葛氏于每逢主日必到教堂参加崇拜聚会,从不缺席;在冬季大雪之时,还提早来会,协助铲雪,使会众均可乘车直达教堂门口,足证其乐道爱人之精神。


  葛氏在其所著:《我为何信神》(Why I Know There Is a God)一文中称:

  “当我被征召受太空训练之时,我首先须读一本小册,便令我想见太空之伟大。其中有一个名词,称为‘光年’。光的速度一秒钟能行十八万六千英里,换言之,在一秒钟之内,则一个‘光年’,其发射距离的直径之辽远,实令人不可思议。而天河众星距离的直径,乃有十万‘光年’。则其伟大更令:无限体系中,众行星都能各按其位,各循其轨旋转运行,井然有序,准确无误,这绝对不能出于偶然,必定有一个伟大的计划,亦必有一个伟大的力量——就是我们敬拜的上帝。我们凭人的官感,虽不能够看见祂,摸到祂;但是借着祂所表现的不可思议的大能,及其精细奇妙的设计,便使我们不能否认上帝的存在(参阅罗马书1:19、20)。

  就飞行空中的飞机来说,它必须有精微巧妙的设计,亦必须有强大有力的发动机,但却另需要一个看不见摸不到的力量,方能发挥其功能,完成其航行的使命——那便是指南针。但是谁在那里指挥那指南针呢?这虽超乎人的官感,我们不能触摸,不能目睹;但由于其所生的实际效果,却令人无可推诿,不能否认,不可违抗。我们要航行安全,我们要达成使命,必须时时刻刻注视那‘指南针’。

  这便使我们领会到一个属灵的真理,那便是人类生活至高无上,不可须臾或离基督圣道。”

  (参看《读者文摘》(Reader's Digest),July,1962)

生平简介:

John Herschel Glenn, Jr. (born July 18, 1921) is a former United States Marine Corps pilot, astronaut, and United States senator who was the first American to orbit the Earth and the third American in space. Glenn was combat aviator in the Marine Corps and one of the seven elite US military test pilots to be selected by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (more commonly referred to as "NASA") to test fly and operate the experimental Mercury spacecraft outside of the mesosphere at altitudes above 115 miles (185 km) and at speeds exceeding 5,000 miles per hour (8,000 km/h) to become the first officially recognized American (US) astronauts. He flew the Friendship 7 mission on February 20, 1962. In 1965, Glenn retired from the military and resigned from NASA so he could be eligible to stand for election to public office. As a member of the Democratic Party he was elected to represent Ohio in the United States Senate from 1974 to 1999.
葛兰.约翰生于1921年7月18日,是前美国海军陆战队飞行员,宇航员,也是美国参议员,他是第一位绕地飞行的美国人、第三位进入太空的美国人。葛林

Glenn received a Congressional Space Medal of Honor in 1978. He was inducted into the Astronaut Hall of Fame in 1990. On October 29, 1998, he became the oldest person to fly in space, and the only one to fly in both the Mercury and Space Shuttle programs, when at age 77, he flew on Discovery (STS-95). As of 2012, Glenn and M. Scott Carpenter are the last living members of the Mercury Seven.
