Worshipping a Great God

"It is a fact of Christian history that those who are consciously worshipping a great God do not find that worship services lasting two or three hours are a bore; on the contrary, they are experienced as a joy. That was true in the seventeenth century, as it is true today. By comparison, the modern Western passion for services lasting not more than sixty minutes raises the suspicion that both our God and our own spiritual statues are rather small."
---J.I.Packer, "A Quest for Godliness: The Puritan Vision of the Christian Life" p. 334.
