What Are You For?

1 day ago By The Signatry

Our world is full of division and hurt. Injustice surrounds us. This is nothing new, it is the fruit of the fall—the curse of sin—manifested around us every day. So what should be our response to these things? As the church and as individuals, we must examine when to fight injustice and where to grow deeper into God’s justice. This is part of whole-life generosity. A sacrificially generous lifestyle will stand up for those in need, for what is right. We must live out what we are for. It is not enough just to say we care about a cause…

Fathers for Generations

2 weeks ago By Len Urbas

As Fathers Day appears on June’s calendar, it can stir many emotions and feelings inside of us. Some have the benefit of a deep and continuing relationship with their fathers, while others may have never met their father. But fatherhood is not limited to biology or earthly definitions – it is about so much more. It is about what God intended for family, lessons learned, experiences shared, spiritual relationship and legacy passed down. We spoke with Len Urbas Jr., our Rocky Mountain regional president, about his experience with his father and as a father himself. Len described his relationship with…

Stories of Motherhood

2 months ago By The Signatry

The stories of motherhood leave a legacy imprinted on our hearts. Sometimes, they are stories of quiet, gentle, sacrifice recognized years later. Sometimes, they are those humorous stories of family lore. Sometimes, they are stories of great sorrow and loss, wounds that God is healing. So today, we celebrate and honor them all. The women of The Signatry are celebrating the moms who inspire them so that as women we are speaking life to one another. Join and share your own stories that inspire you from motherhood. The Sacrifice of a Single Mom On this Mother’s Day, as we look to those women in our lives that have inspired us, for me, it is my mother. Growing up in a single-family home, her sacrifice to support my sister and I was evident in that she was willing to work 3rd shift at General Motors to make sure we were taken care of. It meant my sister taking care of me the best that she could after school each day. It included cooking dinner for the both of us and attempting to help me with homework. As an adult, I have seen those years of support move to that of a mother who truly is a prayer warrior. Instead of nights spent up with me as a child, they are now in fervent prayer for our family. She truly inspires me to be a mother of prayer and strength. -Rhiannon K.

The Hope of the Resurrection

3 months ago By Bill High

As we head into Easter weekend, many will gather, albeit virtually, to celebrate the risen Savior and His gift of hope for a new life. During this time of confusion and uncertainty, many are searching for a sense of hope. So, here on Good Friday, I want to reflect on God’s promise of redemption and hope made manifest through Jesus’ resurrection. What we hope for vs. What we hope in. On that first Easter, believers in Galilee awoke with a sense of hopelessness in their hearts. Three days earlier, their leader, the One whom they thought had come to free…

A Believer’s Call to Solve World Problems

3 months ago By The Signatry

When it comes to solving the world’s biggest problems, Christians should be leading the charge. Whether it is fighting human trafficking, providing access to clean water, or helping those in our communities affected by COVID-19, our mission to be the hands and feet of Jesus remains the same.  Understanding what the Bible says about our role in solving world problems, as believers, frees us to live on mission and share the hope of Christ with a world in need. Here is a look at what the Bible says about solving world problems. What is our calling? Genesis 1:28 teaches us…

Radical Generosity in Times of Uncertainty

4 months ago By The Signatry

In this unprecedented season, our mission and call to live generously have never been stronger. The effects of the coronavirus continue to dominate the news cycle. Businesses and schools are shutting down for the foreseeable future, and many are choosing to practice social distancing to help limit the spread of the virus. This is not just a “season.” We are in the midst of a battle. As believers, this is not the time to shrink back. No, it is a call to arms, a beckoning to join the fight.  Our response should be ground shaking, revolutionary generosity in times of…

Building Your Legacy through Estate Planning

5 months ago By The Signatry

The beginning of the year is a time when many people begin thinking about estate planning. While it is crucial to have the necessary documents (i.e., wills, trusts, etc.) in place, estate planning provides an excellent opportunity to build upon a lasting legacy. Leaving a legacy is more than passing down material possessions; it is the opportunity to pen living documents that create something more beyond our earthly lives. In his book, The Treasure Principle, Randy Alcorn says, “You can’t take it with you, but you can send it on ahead.” Your estate plan is a key opportunity to make…

New Year’s Generosity Resolution

6 months ago By The Signatry

2020 is finally here! Not only is it the beginning of a new year, but it is also the beginning of a new decade. As we flip the calendar to a new year, nearly 200 million Americans will make a New-Year’s resolution. But what if we go beyond the stereotypical New Year’s resolutions and thought about what we, as a community of believers, could accomplish in the coming decade? In their book, God and Money: How We Discovered True Riches at Harvard Business School, John Cortines and Gregory Baumer explain that American evangelical Christians possess an annual income of over…

Advent and Living with Expectations

7 months ago By Bill High

How does your family observe Advent? For many, they use an advent calendar filled with scripture, treats, or small heirlooms to countdown to Christmas. Others observe Advent by fasting. However, as you observe Advent, the primary theme is the same, the anticipation of celebrating Christmas. The typical Advent is twenty-four days long, but imagine waiting four hundred years to celebrate the birth of Christ. That is how long the Israelites waited for the coming of the Messiah. In Luke 2, it is Simeon who was waiting, expectantly, to see the Savior. If you recall, Mary and Joseph took baby Jesus…
