Let us go to the movies

Date: January 8, 2024

Our fundamentalist friends have shown us the way. If you want to impact culture, then you release a movie. Back in 2014, God’s Not Dead was made: a $2 million budget and it grossed over $62 million. A key theme was the academy is anti-God; Christians have a hard time at university. It was a message that was going to resonate ten years later. Culture was changed by the movie.

The Episcopal Church is small. But we are going to try to have the same impact. So, various supporters (including Virginia Theological Seminary) have donated to a modest budget for a movie with an Episcopal message. For one evening only, January 23, you can watch in a regular movie theater “A Case for Love”. Alexandria is one such venue. At the AMC Hoffman Center 22, VTS has purchased 60 tickets (30 for the 4pm showing and 30 for the 7pm showing). If you are interested in the 4pm showing then please reach out to Austin Wendt; for the 7pm showing, please reach out to Taryn Habberley.

We will allocate the tickets to those who reach out first. So do so today. And remember, if you take a ticket, then please go. It is a good movie. And in addition, VTS has a 30 second advertising spot made by our communications team….
