J.I. Packer on "Cultivating Awe in the Presence of God"

|
Our readers may be interested in this video, which looks at topics such as Cultivating Awe in the Presence of God, Christian Meditation and Knowing Christ. 

J.I. Packer is always worth listening to. We did manage to talk about his writing style, but, alas, that part of the conversation is (sadly) not in the video.

I seem to recall recently reading something from the good Dr. Trueman on the subversive nature of reciting the Apostle's Creed.  Then today I came across this as I was reading the good Dr. Packer:

"Each worshiper . . . has come into the hands of the Christian God where he is glad to be, and when he says, 'I beleive,' it is an act of praise and thanksgiving on his part.  It is in truth a great thing to be able to say the Creed."
