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.

Week of Mission

Last week was our week of special mission activities. We were able to assemble a team of about 15 mostly students of our own and some from elsewhere to assist us in door to door, tracting and doing a holiday Bible club for kids. We also studied Romans 1-8 and prayed together. A number of meetings were organised for locals to come to. The week was not an amazing success in terms of people coming in, although at least 50 different ones who are not normally with us came in over the week. The best benefits were in seeing how well the young people responded to task and gelled together. Very encouraging.
