We're back in London after welcoming in the new year in Wales. We were in Aber with Eleri's parents and her younger sister and family. We didn't do anything very special though the boys had fun with glow sticks. Earlier in the evening we were at a party in the church and before that we were all invited over to Eleri's auntie and uncle for lunch. On new year's day we played football again then after lunch we held our traditional silly string squirting event, which has featured here before. After that we packed and hit the road, stopping at MacDonald's Meole Brace retail park en route. The house was pretty cold when we got back but it's good to be home.
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.
