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.

Odd things in Whitby

We are in Whitby for a wedding. We had a little walk around yesterday and we saw three strange things.
1. An abandoned pair of decent black daps or plimsolls
2. Children smoking fake cigarettes (fooled me)
3. Minstrels here for some sort of folk music festival with blacked faces
[I assumed the latter two were illegal. Apparently the Morris men black face is about hiding not race.]
