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.

Dave Swarbrick


I was sorry today to hear of the death of Dave Swarbrick the fiddle player.

I saw Fairport Convention supporting Led Zeppelin at Knebworth in 1979. They were so good I bought their farewell live album.

Funny that. I would keep Led Zep and Fairport in quite different sections in my brain though Stairway to heaven is clearly in the Fairport camp and Sandy Denny did do a vocal on a Led Zep track (Battle of Evermore).
