When it comes to applications, hardware, computers, and other such devices, plug and play technology is awesome. It allows the discovery of a hardware component in a system without the need for physical device configuration. For example, when you plug in that USB headset, or new mouse, keyboard, or similar device, chances are your computer's PNP technology almost instantly recognizes that new device.
Let’s apply the PNP process from a biblical perspective: Does wisdom work the same way? When you read through Proverbs, can you just take a single proverb and plug it into a situation and then expect immediate results?
That's part of what we're talk about in this episode. And that phrase "plug and play" is one that you'll hear my guest use several times when talking about the application of wisdom. We'll also talk about using Proverbs chapters 1-9 as the interpretive lens for the rest of the book.
My guest today is Pastor Keith Peck. He has over 40 years of pastoral ministry experience, and recently retired as pastor emeritus of Broadneck Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Annapolis, Maryland, where he served for 27 years.
Keith is also the guest speaker during session 4 of Summer R&R at White Sulphur Springs, which is currently underway, and he's speaking at Spring Canyon during Summer Celebration Week 7, which starts July 20th.
WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT
Military connection. Keith has ministered to and with the Navigators, Cru and OCF staff at the US Naval Academy, and he shares more about how God put the military on his heart as an area of ministry and outreach.
His presentation at both conference centers includes an introduction study and 6 topics on wisdom, and is titled “Reading Proverbs through the lens of its interpretive guide.” Keith talks more about what that means.
From his introduction study: What is wisdom and why is it important?
Keith delves into the other 6 topics and talks about the purpose of each one.
Keith talks about which of the topics seems to be hardest to grasp or causes the most discussion, and why.
Resources that Keith recommends for someone wanting to do a more in-depth study on wisdom.
