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.

Hommage a la femme

I thought we could mark international women's day with this video collage of over 60 famous women. I composed it with a Dutch and even a Van Leer bias and bearing in mind the early 1990s compostion of the piece. How many women can you name? I forget who some of them are myself. The featured runner is the late Fanny Blanker-Koen, who won four gold medals at the 1948 Olympics.

Brilliant, but I couldn't name very many. Think you missed the queen and Michelle Obama though!
