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.

Hogarth's House

I enjoyed getting out to Chiswick this week to take a look at William Hogarth's house. The little museum is nicely done, is free and is one of London's many hidden wonders. There are no original works as such but there are some original personal items and lots to help you get a feel for the time. Other occupants of the place are not ignored. More here. Nearby is Chiswick House and Gardens, which looks like a visit some time.
