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.

The sausage roll game

I thought of this game the other day. It will only appeal to you if you have a good knowledge of rock music and a childish sense of humour, which many of you don't. Anyway, what you do is you think of a song with the phrase rock 'n' roll in it and replace it with sausage roll (adding other appropriate changes where necessary). So for example

"I love sausage roll, put another dime in the jukebox, baby" (Joan Jett)

"So you want to be a sausage roll bar? Then listen now to what I say" (Byrds)

"I said I know it's only sausage roll but I like it
I know it's only sausage roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do" (Rolling Stones) 

"Just let me hear some of that sausage roll music
Any old way you chews it
It's got a pork taste,
you can't lose it
Any old time you chews it
Gotta be sausage roll music
If you wanna dance with me, If you wanna dance with me" (Chuck Berry)

"It's the next tatse, new food, pork craze, anyways
It's still sausage roll to me

Everybody's talkin' 'bout the new taste
Funny, but it's sausage roll to me" (Billy Joel)

My favourite so far  -
"We built this city, we built this city on sausage roll
Built this city, we built this city on sausage roll" (Starship)

Sweet little lady sings, like a songbird
And she sings the opera like you ain't never heard
But she ain't ready
No, no, no, she ain't ready
No, no, no, she ain't ready
And she won't eat a sausage roll

Ivan likes replacing the word 'love' with 'drugs'... "I don't want to wait in Spain for your drugs".
