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.

High Wycombe

It's been rather busy this week so I haven't mentioned my trip to High Wycombe last Lord's Day. The pastor, Raymond Zulu, was away in his native South Africa and so I came and preached on Romans and Job to decent sized congregations with a good spread of ages and international backgrounds (though dominated by white South Africans it must be said). The church building was erected in the seventies and has all the advantages and disadvantages that brings. it is set on a hill with a commanding view. I had a very pleasant afternoon in the nearby countryside with members of the congregation. More on the church here.
