oh, just a reminder

“You can be a revolutionary, but you can also be a conservative. Where this contrast between revolutionary and conservative is united in one man, where he may be at once quite restless and quite at rest, where he may be with others in that way in the congregation, in which the members recognize each other in longing and in humility in the light of the divine humour, he will do what he has to do. In this light all our Church action is allowed and in fact commended. So the Church, waiting and hurrying, goes to meet the coming of the Lord.”

- Barth, Dogmatics in Outline (148)
