Open Arms Church News--Bradford, PA

Hello everybody!

Wow, another week gone by! Life goes by fast doesn't it? It's a good
reminder to make the most out of every day. Have you ever asked
yourself "How do I live my life to the full?" Like Jesus says in John
10:10 "I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better
life than they ever dreamed of." (The Message) Pastor Mike talks
about in his blog titled, "You Can Go Your Own Way," life lived God's
way gets us the best results. Check out his blog at
Here is a little excerpt from it: "I can choose to embrace God’s way
of life and experience all that He promised or I can do as I please
and go my own way, but I must be very clear in my understanding that
doing it my way will produce my results, not Gods." God is for you,
working on your behalf, will you work with him?

Do all religions (or lack of) get the same access to Solomon's Words as a sounding board for their beliefs?
