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.

Last Midweek Meeting of 2015

We often don't have a midweek meeting in this final week of the year as so many are usually away but as I was around I said there would be a prayer meeting and six of us go together for that last night. We sang a hymn at the beginning and end and I read from Psalm 20 but most of the rest of the time was spent in prayer. Everyone prayed. I'm glad we met.
Back home we played a game, ate some chocs and watched the rest of the Agatha Christie, which I was not impressed with. The new year beckons. Our few family guests from afar are all gone now.
