Bible text balls promise a holy hole in one

GOLFERS feeling below par and in need of divine inspiration could do worse than attend a church exhibition in the Capital.

The Scottish Christian Resources Exhibition (CRE), at Edinburgh's Royal Highland Centre, will feature a set of three Glory Golf Balls, each inscribed with Bible text.

One reads: ". . . but each shall go out straight ahead", Ezekiel 46: 9; while another says: "Lift up your eyes on high and see . . . not one is missing", Isaiah 40:26.

The third reads: "I have finished the course. I have kept the faith", 2 Timothy 4:7.

The golf balls have been produced by Scottish supplier Holy Socks and have been entered for a McNoot Award, which are handed out at the exhibition.

Other entries hoping to land a coveted McNoot include preaching puppets, low-cost handbells, and a solar-powered Bible.

Brett Pitchfork, events director at the exhibition, said: "Old meets new in a unique way at the CRE.

"This competition gives visitors a chance to see some intriguing new products."

The exhibition is set to take place between October 13 and 15.
