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.

10 Famous goalkeepers

As someone who played in goals as a boy myself this list is of interest as a fine bit of trivia. (We are talking about soccer, of course).
1. Algerian born writer and philosopher Albert Camus played for Racing Universitaire Algerios (RUA) junior team (“All that I know most surely about morality and obligations I owe to football.”)
2. Spanish crooner Julio Iglesias played for Los Blancos Juniors
3. Karol Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II) played for Krakow University
4. Opera singer Luciano Pavarotti played in goal for Modena Juniors before moving to the wing position
5. Writer Arthur Conan Doyle played for a team called Portsmouth F C (but unconnected to the present day team)
6. Writer Vladimir Nabokov played during his time at Cambridge
7. Scientist Niels Bohr played for Akademisk Boldklub (his lesser known brother Harrald played for the national side when Denmark took silver at the 1908 Olympics)
8. Revolutionary Che Guevara (in goals and not on the left wing due to asthma)
9. Religious oddity David Icke played for Coventry City
10. Boyband Westlife singer Nicky Byrne played for Leeds United youth who won the FA Youth Cup in 1997
