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.

Wales at Wembley

So we didn't win but when we consider that Wales are ranked 113 places below England and there was only one goal in it, it wasn't a bad evening all told. The fact Wales captain Aaron Ramsey was man of the match says a lot. I'd not been in the new Wembley before. It is an excellent venue, much better than the old stadium. The 77,128 present (including me and three of the boys) were good humoured and enjoyed as best they could what was not a great night of football.
