A Kansas City church suffered another attack this morning that they believe was inspired by their signs and support of racial & social justice.
Just yesterday the church was able to replace the banner after a humble ask for donations of $250 earned success and supporters gave a modest $485.

KANSAS CITY CHURCH DECLARES VANDALISM AND HATE WILL NOT STOP THEIR MESSAGE OF LOVE!!!
Here's the note from South-Broadland Presbyterian Church that was just shared . . .
This morning vandals destroyed 15 windows around our church building. We assume it is in response to our stand against racism.
We believe black lives matter.... "Black Lives Matter" is a misunderstood phrase in portions of American culture. It doesn’t mean that ONLY Black Lives Matter. Instead, it is a lament over the injustice that has been perpetuated against the Black community and an assertion of the dignity of Black people as human beings created in the image of God." Jemar Tisby
We grieve there continues to be those who want to bully us to silence us....but vandalism will not stop the message. We ask for prayers for those who rationalize their violence....may God find appropriate ways to bless them.
“Hate cannot drive out hate:only LOVE can do that.” So we will love!
