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.

Midweek Meeting March 9 2016

We were rather low in numbers on Wednesday and it would be easy to have been discouraged (I probably was a bit) but it was just the combination of a number of circumstances. We looked at the opening two verses of 2 Timothy 2 and it was a blessing to see how much is packed into just two verses. The prayer time was a little shorter than usual. Surprisingly, sometimes people are less keen to pray when there are less people.
