Last week the pronouncements of local clerics earned high profile coverage from local media and we're sad to see a dramatic turnaround today hasn't garnered the same kind of attention or even an update from Kansas City media outlets.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY URBAN CORE FAITH LEADERS RENOUNCE DEMANDS FOR THE REMOVAL OF THE KCPD CHIEF AND CLAIM THEY WERE 'MISINFORMED & MISGUIDED' IN THEIR BOLD STATEMENTS!!!
We've been working behind the scenes on a few other things but we're VERY surprised that this news didn't make a bigger splash today after massive news coverage of the initial blast. Nevertheless, we believe the leap of faith might garner more interest tomorrow given that it's always captivating to witness people seeing the light.

Opening the hearts to communication is the key in moving forward and making change.
Over the weekend Pastor Darron LaMonte Edwards, Co-Organizer for Getting to the Heart of the Matter, reached out to Dr. Dee Cooper with Heartland Presbytery to openly discuss her statement made this past Friday, "this is not anti-police, it is anti-process".
Pastor Edwards had conversations with Dr. Cooper and tomorrow morning Pastor Edwards will read a letter from the Heartland Presbytery acknowledging that they were misinformed and misguided when they made their statement this past Friday.
Please join Pastor Edwards as well as Chaplains and members of the Kansas City, MO. Police Department as they acknowledge Heartland Presbytery and their willingness to join in on discussions.
Pastor Edwards will also give a much anticipated update on the outstanding progress of Getting to the Heart of the Matter, a solutions initiative supported by the KCPD and Chief Rick Smith.
When: Tomorrow, Tuesday March 23rd. 9:00am
Where: KCPD East Patrol Division, Community room (front lobby to the left); 27th and Prospect, KCMO
