    I was way too nice to you. I didn’t say the real things I don’t like about you. 🙂

    I am asking God to heal you completely of this cancer, for His glory.

    We need you here a little longer. Yes, God, we do.

    Pastor James,

    You have been such a blessing to our church. Your teachings on trials has really helped me out and have allowed me to have a better understanding as to why God allows them. I pray for your recovery, you are such a godly man! I cannot wait to see you on “The Price is Right.” LOL Take care and we’ll see you next Wednesday for your last sermon on trials.

    You and Greg are both super cool. I’m sure you are BFF’s!!!!

    God Bless

    Dear Pastor James,

    Thank you! for teaching us at Harvest this month and thank you for your blog message. It’s fun to hear how you feel about my pastor, I love everthing about Greg and all his coolness! I love it too that you (in your trial) could come out to our state, sunny Southern California, and minister.

    You are a great man, and me and my family have been praying for you since Pastor Greg told us you were going to come.

    Cancer, what an ugly disease. But it can be beat! My dad is a survivor of prostate cancer, seven years now! I pray the same for you.

    Our family has so enjoyed listening to your teaching this month at Harvest! I feel like I could just give you a warm embrace. You have so much love for the Lord, it’s so awesome. Thank you again for using your trial and blessing us here in California! Our ramily will continue lifting you up as you go through your treatments… In Christ Jesus.

    Pastor James, that was just too cool. I think that you are nearing Pastor Greg’s coolness level, just because of this video.

    I put you on my prayer list for your cancer battle. My 25-year-old son Bryce was diagnosed in November with Stage 3 Hodgkins Lymphoma and is undergoing chemo. If all who read this would pray for him, I would be most grateful.

    Blessings from Vision: Calvary Chapel Porterville.

    Love the video! So funny and so very nice too! You guys must have so much fun when you are together. You both have the best sense of humor.

    Great godly men who know how to have fun!

    I loved the video blog. I also enjoyed your study Sunday online. I am in Cooper City, FL and go to church at Calvary Chapel FTL. I love your and Pastor Greg’s way of teaching the Word. You bless me sooo much. I also enjoy both of you on Reach FM. Powerful men of God, thanks so much for your transparent will when you preach.

    I am going to be praying for you and your family. May God bless you with His peace during this time. I look forward to this Sunday’s teaching.

    I cannot go without telling you that, besides my own Pastor Bob Coy, you and Pastor Greg have had the biggest impact on my life. You guys are awesome. I can’t wait to meet you guys and your families in heaven. We are going to have the biggest, longest party with our loved ones and each other. Hey, I hope I get to meet Paul. I get so excited just thinking about it. I will let you go. Have a Blessed day! Renee 🙂

    Love this video blog 🙂 I love being a part of Harvest and feel so blessed to have an awesome pastor. Sunday was such a blessing to hear Pastor James, as well. What an amazing message! I can’t get to Wednesday night Bible study, but I’m going to be watching online . . . can’t wait! I’ve been going through some difficult times with my pregnancy and just keep reminding myself that God is in control. I’m praying for you, Pastor James! Thanks for sharing with us at Harvest!

    Very moving, powerful, passionate message on Sunday, thank you. I will keep you in my prayers.

    Hey, you’re right, Pastor Greg is really cool! :] But so are you, Pastor James.

    P.S. Mark, I live in San Bernardino!

    That was great! I really enjoyed that video blog. I want to say thank you to Pastor James MacDonald for taking the time to bless our church during his time of trial. I know I love having him at Harvest.

  13. Kathryn says:

    Great comments and insight from Pastor MacDonald. What I love is Pastor Greg’s humor. He has that “outside the box” kind of funniness. He says the obvious in a not so obvious way. Also, I love how he keeps up with current events and what is currently popular and weaves them in with his messages. God Bless Pastor Greg.
    God bless and heal Pastor MacDonald. I heard his message Sunday and it was awesome!!

  14. Mark says:

    Wait, Greg has his own parking spot, and I have to park in San Bernardino for the 9:45 service!

  15. Teresa says:

    Hi Pastor James,

    Thank you for your take on our Pastor Greg. Very funny. I don’t know who is funnier, you or Pastor Greg, but I do know that you are both great men of God and I pray that God continues to bless both of you in all that you do. Thank you for the message on Sunday. It was just what I needed to hear. Pastor James, I am praying for you in the trial you are going through.
