Bonhoeffer uses a similar phrase 'worldly Christianity'. It's J Gresham Machen that I want to line up most closely with. See his Christianity and culture here. Having done commentaries on Proverbs (Heavenly Wisdom) and Song of Songs (Heavenly Love), a matching title for Ecclesiastes would be Heavenly Worldliness. For my stance on worldliness, see 3 posts here.

Turkey and Greece

I've never had turkey with salsa - definitely worth a try, although it may taste foul, the stuff of nightmares!

In any case 'grease is the word'!

Sorry to keep plaguing your pun posts with bad responses, I just can't resist!

When I was young I always fancies going swimming in Greece.

Would one feel chipper, or a good (fried) egg?

Andrew: I deserve such punishment. Alan: I'm sure I heard them say on Radio 4 this morning (with no hint of irony) that Greece is a 'fat free' holiday destination!
