Doing justice, seeking peace and building community are central to the identity of the United Church of Christ. We invite you to explore the breadth and depth of the UCC’s justice work. Join us in building a stronger faith-based movement for peace, justice, equality and inclusivity. Our work is rooted in the teachings of scripture and the policies of our General Synod.
Justice issues include children/education, civil and human rights, economic justice, environment, health, peacemaking, human sexuality, racial justice and worker justice.
WHY THE COMMA?: 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. Since 2004, Stillspeaking has worked with thousands of UCC churches and individuals across the country to make religion relevant again 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 United Church of Christ.
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 logo 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. It says God is still speaking.
