From the award-winning team behind The Story of God with Morgan Freeman comes the new six-part series, The Story of Us with Morgan Freeman. At a time when events seem to be driving cultures apart and splintering our own, Morgan Freeman goes on a global journey to understand how human culture has taken so many remarkable forms. At the root of his quest is a drive to uncover the fundamental forces that keep our societies together, while revealing the common humanity that lies inside each one of us. Vast in his scope of inquiry yet with an intimate approach to each subject, Freeman meets people from all over the globe to explore the strength of belief, the thirst for power, how love shapes us, the role conflict plays in our lives, the spirit of rebellion and the concept of freedom.
We will gather at Myers Park Baptist Church on Friday Nov 10 for a preview screening of Episode 5, “The Power of Us,” in which Freeman investigates the myriad of ways people of faith and no faith are starting to organize, lead, and act for the common good. We will be joined by the show’s executive producer James Younger and local voices to discuss the episode and the movements it is amplifying. This show and this episode highlight an important part of this congregation’s commitment to justice and our community.
We hope you will join us for an evening of inspiration and conversation.
When: Friday, November 10, 7 PM – 9 PM
Where: Myers Park Baptist Church, 1900 Queens Road, Charlotte, NC
