Words of Modern Day Prophets and Apostles Dec. 3, 2008

Elder Boyd K. Packer of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles:

"When we meet to learn the doctrines of the gospel, it should be in a spirit of reverence. It is about reverence and how it relates to revelation that I wish to speak.
"Inspiration comes more easily in peaceful settings. Such words as quiet, still, peaceable, Comforter abound in the scriptures: 'Be still, and know that I am God' (Psalm 46:10). And the promise, 'You shall receive my Spirit, the Holy Ghost, even the Comforter, which shall teach you the peaceable things of the kingdom' (D&C 36:2). . . .
"Irreverent conduct in our chapels is worthy of a reminder, if not reproof. Leaders should teach that reverence invites revelation" (in Conference Report, Oct. 1991, 27–28; or Ensign, Nov. 1991, 2122).
