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.

The assembly began with our host Howard sayers encouraging us to seek God's face that we may (like Bartimaeus) receive our sight. He urged us to see the world as the Saviour sees it and to respond with faithful prayer and preaching of the Word, reviving our hope and renewing it in Christ. We sang "O breath of life" to close.
