Stillspeaking. It's the shorter form of "God is still speaking," a campaign by the United Church of Christ to remind us that God still has a lot more to say. and to extend an extravagant welcome to all—because no matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you're welcome here. Here at the First Congregational Church of Vernon - United Church of Christ.
Inspiration for the campaign was found in John Robinson, pastor to the Pilgrims, who pointed to the future saying, "Do not cling to where Luther and Calvin have brought you, for God hath yet more truth and light to break forth from his holy word."
God is still speaking means we listen for the Stillspeaking God.

Why the Comma?
There's a lot to the UCC Comma.
The comma was inspired by the Gracie Allen quote, "Never place a period where God has placed a comma."
For the UCC the Comma is a new way to proclaim "Our Faith is 2,000 years old, our thinking is not."
The Comma invites us to believe that God speaks through other people, nature, music, art, a theorem, the Bible, and in so many other ways.
The Comma reminds us of the unusual religious freedom and responsibility to engage the Bible with our own unique experiences, questions, and ideas.
The Comma reminds us to balance our rich religious past with openness to the new ideas, new people, and new possibilities of the future.
