Welcome to Wedgwood!

At Wedgwood Community Church, we see faith as a journey;
and as a community of faith, it is our desire to be on that journey together, nurturing, encouraging, and giving strength to one another as we learn and grow and move further along our path. We seek to be a place where everyone feels safe to explore a deep connection to God and with each other, knowing that every person's story is different.

We would love to meet you wherever you are on your journey--
so please, come see for yourself who we are at Wedgwood CC!

 Pastor's Ponderings / Ministry Message

About Rev. Wim Mauldin

Rev. Wim Mauldin
 

Wim Mauldin has been pastor of Wedgwood Community Church since 2012. He comes from the American Baptist tradition and yet people who listen to him seem surprised because he does not fit what they think of as "Baptist". His training and experiences include those as family counselor, chemical dependency counselor and interventionist, supervisor of chaplains in training, community organizer, and local church pastor. Pastor Wim and his wife have two adult daughters who live in Seattle, WA and Nairobi, Kenya.

 

AFC Offering 2016 Connecting with Each Other

By now they have drifted off from memory. Those first few conversations you had with your best friends, the ones that built a foundation for what was to come. Among those foundation stones were trust, mutual interest and shared experiences. As you talked, a kind of magic wove its way through the words into your hearts. There is no formula for this kind of magic. It is simply God’s grace.

When I was a young pastor, there were two books that introduced me to what was going on in such moments of grace: The Miracle of Dialogue and The Awesome Power of the Listening Ear. They convinced me that speaking and listening from the heart were both needed for relationships to begin and grow.

There are skills in both speaking and listening that enhance our ability to express the grace and spirit that God plants in each of us. The difficulty is that when we first focus our attention on these skills they can feel awkward, like the first time we used a shovel or a sewing machine. We thought “this just isn’t me, it feels clanky and inauthentic.” With time, those tools became extensions of ourselves, ways we began to express ourselves in powerful, creative ways. The skills were never enough. No matter how well we might use the tool, the passion and heart in what we were doing was the critical difference between just getting it done and expressing creativity.

The potential for genuinely communicating in new and more powerful ways waits for us in learning new skills in listening and sharing our own stories. There are lots of ways to make conversations more interesting. You are invited to explore many of those ways when we gather at 12:45 PM, Sunday, June 5, in the Fellowship Hall for “Steps to Deeper Relationships.” Learning how to connect with each other in deeper ways always enhances our lives, but right now seems timely. We have the immediate opportunity to use these new avenues for connecting while we gather in our small groups. So the Lay Leadership Team and I want to urge you to join us. Who knows, you may make new best friends.

See you then, Pastor Wim
