We had a good turn out yesterday (evenually) in double figures. Given that Easter is fast approaching I decided to look at three characters conected with the trial, death and burial of Christ - namely Pilate's wife, the Roman centurion and Joseph of Arimathea. It is alwasy good to look at the cross. As ever there was plenty to pray about and just about time for everyone to take part.
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.
