Premiere of “A Case for Love”

Tue, January 23, 2024

A documentary film featuring Presiding Bishop Michael Curry that examines how unselfish love is the solution to the extreme societal and political divide facing the world.

Also featured: Pete Buttigieg, Al Roker, Sam Waterston, John Danforth, Becca Stevens, John Meacham, Russell Moore, Kelly Brown Douglas, and Jim Clyburn.

Tuesday, January 23 in theatres across the country

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry shares God’s love so powerfully through his preaching and teaching.

His ministry is a gift to the Episcopal Church. We want to share his message even more broadly.

Leaders across the Diocese of New York are coordinating screenings at 5 locations across our 3 regions. Congregations are partnering together to fill the theatres.

If the national premiere receives good response, the documentary could be distributed much more widely.

Here’s how to join: Let the host in the theater nearest you know that you want to attend. We are helping underwrite participation so that everyone can take part.

Here are the locations, hosts, and contacts.
