Midweek meeting was a little bit different this week. We are having a week of prayer meetings. We had the first one on Tuesday morning when four of us gathered to pray and this was the second. We have a members meeting on Thursday and we will try to spend time in prayer then. There will also be prayer meetings for three days after that. I think a week of prayer is a good means of reminding us of the imprtance of prayer adn getting us all re-focussed. I spoke very briefly on lifting our souls to God.
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.
