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.

Wedding of my son Dewi

Great day yesterday as my son Dewi married Esther from Cross Hills in Yorkshire. It was rather wet at first but brightened through the day adn we an excellent time as we moved from the wedding itself to the cake reception and eventually to the main reception in Cracoe. It was great to see everyone. A lovely day for which we give thanks to God.

Cake reception before the main re eption. Remember Howel Williams? He could only eat desert before his main. Seriously though congratulations and every blessing on you all.

I do rememember Howell and his crazy regime that had to be kept from children. Somehow eating cake before eating a meal in another building doesn't seem strange.
