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.

And what do you do?

It is sometimes difficult to know what to say in answer to the question what I do. I prefer Christian minister to minister of religion. I just received an email recommending I link up with a fellow minister who is described as an Independent Religious Institution Professional. Now I know what to answer.
