Apocalypse show features local pastor

Matthew Baker
Staff Writer

The pastor of a local church was featured in a recent History Channel 2 program focused on the end of the world.

The Rev. Patrick Henry, pastor of Redeemer Lutheran Church in Peru, spent a few hours earlier this year being interviewed by a production team about theological issues regarding the Book of Revelation. He said his niece, Erin Henry, originally of Rochelle, who now works on various productions in Hollywood as a freelancer, connected him with the production crew.

“I had a great time doing it,” Henry said.

While it was fun, he expected he’d probably end up on the cutting room floor once the footage made it back to California. Instead, he pops up throughout an episode of the History Channel 2 series “Countdown to Apocalypse” called “Four Horsemen.”

The series “introduces the origins and traditions behind the impending end of the world” as the proposed apocalyptic date of Dec. 21, 2012 approaches, according to the History Channel’s website.

Henry hasn’t seen himself on TV yet, but he planned to watch a taped copy of the program on Thanksgiving.

“Countdown to Apocalypse” airs Fridays on H2 at 10 p.m.

The episode featuring Henry can also be found in full on H2’s website. (See Related Links below.)
