Dr. Dale Harris a former Harvest Bible Chapel pastor did an analysis on Rick Donald’s sermon on Twitter recently. This is Dr. Dale Harris look at Rick Donald’s sermon in the wake of James MacDonald’s firing from Harvest Bible Chapel.
“It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.”
“There is divine beauty in learning…. To learn means to accept the postulate that life did not begin at my birth. Others have been here before me, and I walk in their footsteps.”
11 Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other. 12 No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us.

Dr. Dale Harris is a pastor at Range Community Bible Church at Hurley, Wisconsin. Dale has a history with Harvest Bible Chapel both through Moody and in the Midwest. He wrote a post for this blog which you can read in, “Guest Post: Dr. Dale Harris, A Former Harvest Bible Fellowship Pastor Shares His Experience With Harvest Chicago and his Thoughts on James MacDonald.” Dale is a good guy and its been a pleasure to interact with him from time to time.
Yesterday on Twitter Dale Harris did a sermon analysis of Rick Donald’s sermon. It was after James MacDonald had been fired and the first real talk since that chain of events. The fact that Rick Donald was chosen communicated a bad message to Harvest. The message I received is that not much has changed. James MacDonald’s own personal “assassin” who carries out MacDonald’s will was going to be calling the shots. This is Dale Harris study of Rick Donald’s sermon the other day. You need to read this post from bottom to top.
