God & Country

You can’t turn on the news without becoming aware that things aren’t going so well in the good ole USA. What’s worse, it seems that those who lead us can’t agree on how to change things.

While politicians frame the debate as rich vs. poor, big business vs. the middle class, or Republican vs. Democrat, there is another conflict that reflects a much deeper divide in American culture—a conflict that, if resolved, could bring our nation together to address the issues that fill the airways. And what is that conflict? Watch God & Country to find out.

He’s Still* Got the Whole World in His Hands

How do we remain hopeful in a world that seems hopelessly broken?

How do we continue to trust a God that seems conspicuously absent?

How do we find peace in a world that is spinning out of control?

If you’ve ever asked QUESTIONS like these, youre not alone . . . and you’re not the first. Why? Because UNCERTAINTY is nothing new. And the uncertainty we face today is no different from the uncertainty faced by the men and women of the Bible. And, like them, we are left to question Gods faithfulness, his presence, his concern. But in the end, they, like us, were reminded that . . . He’s Still* Got the Whole World in His Hands.

Why Worry

WORRY. It’s universal. Its as much a part of life as breathing. Yet Jesus said, Don’t. Don’t worry! Easier said than done. In this series, Andy explores what Jesus had to say about this important topic.

You’ll discover where worry comes from, why it’s so difficult to overcome, and what you can do to conquer it. Andy guides us through an Old Testament story about a man who was challenged with a single question—a question that brought a new perspective to his worries. That question may be the key to overcoming worry in your life as well!

    I really like how you incorporated the graphic novel element throughout the painting, having the comic panels as part of their clothing! Love it

    The pandemic also brought to the fore the change in work environments and a greater need for cyber protection. The growth in cryptocurrency, the immediacy of payments, and the lack of buyers for stolen data also make ransomware much more attractive for a criminal enterprise, increasing the need for coverage.
    Standalone cyber direct premium grew by 95%, increasing to the point that it exceeded all cyber premium combined.
    Through 2018, the majority of cyber-related claims were on packaged policies. However, according to the report, claims on standalone policies are now the majority – and growing. Standalone policies are more often subject to claims, given that more-sophisticated clients with more data and financial resources typically purchase these policies.
    Debates between brokers and underwriters rage on exactly what cyber insurance policies should cover and to what extent an insured’s cyber risk management maturity requirements need to adapt to the 2022 threat landscape. Capacity questions have not been settled, and exactly how much will be available in the U.S. and global cyber markets in 2024 remains an open question.
    Despite the ongoing growth in cyber claims, cyber insurers’ underwriting performance still improved, as evidenced by an estimated combined ratio of 91.8, although the estimated combined ratio on standalone policies was worse at 98.8, Beinsure Media wrote.
    The positive underwriting results were due largely to strong rate increases, which exceeded on average 25% in each quarter of 2023.
    With cyber-attacks becoming more complex, AM Best expects the cyber market to remain hard for some time. The hardening market and a lack of capacity also has made captives an attractive risk management option for corporations.
    Cybercrime generated significant headlines throughout 2024. These attacks underscore the urgency of addressing cyber threats, which require brokers, underwriters, managing general agents and customers to work together, along with some legislative and regulatory involvement. The rising frequency and severity of ransomware attacks suggest that insurers need to be more proactive.
