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 December 14 2016

We were a small number on Wednesday and I arrived late, which is not the best start. I decided not to go with the Christmas vibe and instead to carry on with the series on the Psalms of ascent and so we came to Psalm 123 on prayer - attitudes and content. We then, appropriately, prayed for while array of things. The heater did its usual trick of making a noise during the prayer time. If I was more superstitious I might think it possessed. We don't need distractions.
