New life for those seldom-used special characters on your keyboard!

punctuation symbols

The UCC is widely known as that “comma church.” Meaning that our denomination’s logo includes a comma. 

That comma symbol has its genesis from a quote, not from some famous theologian, but from entertainer Gracie Allen to her husband, George Burns: “Never place a period where God has put a comma.”

We’ve added over the years to that, saying, “God is still speaking,”

Other punctuation marks seem to fit as well:

  • ?  Bring your questions during Lent and beyond. I can’t promise a 15-second answer to any of the things with which you are puzzled, but questions are welcomed.
  • !  Bring your joy! Don’t be afraid of expressing your joy!
  • ( )  You are included, valued, and important.
  •   Bring your waiting time, the time of discernment.
  • @  Be at church this season.
  • &  Bring others – make the circle wider and wider.
  • *  You are special and unique.
  • >  Be a part of something greater than yourself.

Lent is a great time to discover who we are and who we are to become.

Shalom, Paul
