Slow remedies

This post is from the defunct blog “Dying Church”

I occasionally worry that I'm not taking enough risks in my life. I fear that I'll one day wish that I had lived more boldly, especially in some of the ministry choices that I've made. I came across this quote by Calvin today that made me ask this question again. Calvin wrote in The Necessity of Reforming the Church:

The question is not, Whether the Church labors under diseases both numerous and grievous, (this is admitted even by all the moderate judges,) but whether the diseases are of a kind the cure of which admits not of longer delay, and as to which, therefore, it is neither useful nor becoming to await the result of slow remedies.

Good question.
