Autumn is definitely with us now but ten of us met in the chapel parlour last Wednesday, as we began a new series on 1 Timothy. We only looked at the first two verses but there was plenty to chew on. I had thought of doing seven verses but decided against it and I am glad I did. By trying to be interactve it ended up quite long. There was enough time for a good session of prayer, however, when most people prayed.
The similar phrase 'Worldly Christianity' is one used by Bonhoeffer. 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.
