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.

Lord's Day July 2 2017

It's been a busy week and I have not done a report on last Lord's Day yet. It may seem like ancient history by now but numbers were quite low last week I recall, with many away on holiday or travelling and one or two not well. We were down to ten in the evening. Not knowing who would be there quite I thought it best to go for texts. I preached in the morning on John 15:4, 5 and in the evening on John 14:13, 14. They are such vital verses, it was good to revisit them.
(We held over our normal morning communion to next week).
