In the upcoming episode of “The Story of God,” Morgan Freeman travels to New Orleans to speak to survivors of hurricane Katrina and learn how their Christian faith enabled them to overcome hardship and rebuild their community.
The National Geographic series follows Freeman as he travels to 20 cities in seven different countries in a quest to find answers to the mysteries of faith.
In episode 2 titled “Apocalypse,” viewers get a glimpse of the Hollywood actor at Carrollton Avenue Church of Christ in New Orleans with two ministers who are also survivors of the 2005 hurricane that hit the Mississippi Gulf Coast, which led to water levees and flood walls breaking in New Orleans, flooding 80 peecent of the city.
While Freeman learned that some residents believed the hurricane was the end of the world, others who sought refuge at their local church said they found hope, and knew God would bring them through the tragedy.
