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.

Good news bad news

Do you remember those good news bad news jokes that were popular a few years ago? My trip to the GBA was a good news bad news thing.
Good news - I was able to drive there and back in the car, which was recently fixed
Bad news - I couldn't get the air conditioning or the radio to work the five hours I was travelling
