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.

April Foolery

I decided against an April Fool this time round. The one I'd been thinking about didn't seem quite right, somehow. There were a few about, however, including Youtube's mild mannered trip back to 1911 and Google mail's thing about non-mouse control. I also liked heresy huntin'  Martin Donwes' revaltion about the Lloyd-Jones diaries (that worked because you just wanted it to be true). Best of all was Mohammed Al Fayed's Michael Jackson statue at the Fulham ground. Jackson did watch a game there once (against Wigan) so deserves a statue I guess. Priceless.
... It is ...??
