What’s that comma all about?
What’s up with that comma? And why is it all over our website? And what does “God is still speaking,” even mean?
Glad you asked! The Still Speaking Campaign is an identity initiative in the United Church of Christ. It is based on an old Gracie Allen quote, when she quipped, “Never place a period where God has placed a comma.” It reminds us that God isn’t finished with us yet, that God is still active and vital in the on-going work of creation, and that if God is still speaking then we need to be about the work of listening and doing. Listening for God’s new revelations to us, and doing the work that God is calling us to be about. Which calls to mind another famous quote from the history of the United Church of Christ. John Robinson, the 17th Century pastor to the Pilgrims said, “There is more truth and light yet to break forth from God’s holy word.”
At the Encanto Community Church UCC we firmly believe that God is still speaking, and that God’s word is one of abundant welcome, outlandish hospitality, and overwhelming love. We hope that you will come and join us for worship, fellowship, prayer, and service as we continue to follow our still speaking God.
