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.

10 Free

1. Free churches - churches intrinsically separated from state government. Not part of the established or state church. 
2. Free house - a pub not tied to selling beer from only one brewery but free to choose its wares
3. Free jazz - an attempt to alter, extend, or break down jazz convention, often by discarding fixed chord changes or tempos. Regarded by some as avant-garde, others say it is an attempt to return jazz to its primitive, often religious, roots with an emphasis on collective improvisation.
4. Free port - or free zone (zona franca), sometimes also called a bonded area (or in the US a Foreign-Trade Zone) is a port or other area with relaxed jurisdiction of customs or related national regulations
5. Freeware - computer software available for use at no monetary cost, though there may be some restrictions (eg on redistribution). Some would say freeware that is closed source (eg Adobe Reader and Skype) should not be called freeware.
6. Free Wales Army - Byddin Rhyddid Cymru was a paramilitary Welsh nationalist organisation, formed at Lampeter in 1963 by WIlliam Julian Cayo-Evans. Its objective was to establish an independent Welsh republic.
7. Free trade - a policy in international markets in which governments do not restrict imports or exports
8. Free market - a market system in which the prices for goods and services are set freely by consent between sellers and consumers, in which the laws and forces of supply and demand are free from any intervention by a government, price-setting monopoly, or other authority
9. Free association - a technique used in psychoanalysis originally devised by Freud
10. Fee culture - concerns the way copyright restrictions have increased since 1974 in duration, scope, reach, control and other ways, stifling competition and creativeness. It argues for greater freedom to distribute and modify creative works in the form of free content by using the Internet and other forms of media.
