Church Matters

By Alex Russon / May 5, 2024

Psalm 104 The bible contains 66 books in total, 39 of them in the Old Testament and 27 in the New. I mention this since some may believe it’s one continuous opus, but by splitting the story into separate books we’re able to better focus on specific themes, individuals and messages. For example, there are […]

Stonehaven Golf Club

week # 4 Stonehaven Golf Club’s tee-sheet spoke volumes on Monday, littered as it was with individuals looking to play their golf alone. This is often the way after a Saturday Medal, chastened members taking action to fix humbling horror shows. It’s an exorcism attempt really, 9 holes of solitary golf to deal with swing […]

1 Samuel 4 : 12 – 22 This week’s sermon from the Old Testament detailed the seizure by enemies of the ark of the covenant, a physical construct which the people of the age looked to as holy. The ark was whipped from under the Israelites’ noses and left them believing God had left them, […]

week #3 (part II) Cowie Cup Rd 1 & Willie Watt Qualifier Most Stonehaven golfers commence the season with a personal aspiration, perhaps to reduce one’s handicap, qualify for the last two rounds of the club championship or simply complete the campaign without chucking their clubs over a cliff. We’re rather like marathon runners in […]

week #3 (part 1) Your golfing correspondent’s season got itself off the ground this week, a fortnight after everyone else’s. Work commitments and a (triumphant) trip to Villa Park had prevented me from entering the fray until now. It was a tonic not to be playing in a full set of long johns but it […]

Church Matters

Resorting to ‘safe places’ is something all of us do since such places can feel familiar, giving us comfort. They could be homes, parks, the allotment, maybe a specific spot on a beach, even the bathroom, we all have our ‘go to’ locations when seeking peace and reassurance. Church can be people’s safe place. We […]

week #2 All eyes were glued on Augusta National at the weekend as The Masters played out in the USA. Hats off to Scottie Scheffler for taking the title and all that but I’d like to see him try and find the 2nd green at Stoney in the weather we’ve been suffering lately. Blustery conditions […]

Week #1 After six gruelling months of winter golf, Stonehaven Golf Club finally ventured into the summer season this week, a relief to all. The winter mats are now gone, the fairways cut and the greens rolled, everything is set…ahem, except for the weather. We were rained off on Wednesday for the first comp of […]

If you’re a regular church-goer, or irregular for that matter, it’s comforting to know there’ll be an accessible venue wherever you may find yourself on a Sunday. Churches aren’t members-only establishments, all are welcome. This week for example I found myself in Aberdeen so dropped into Bridge Of Don’s Baptist Church, and a welcoming bunch […]

Stonehaven Golf – a diary

By Alex Russon / April 2, 2024

It’s with a degree of trepidation that your correspondent enters the new golfing season. They say form is temporary and class permanent but quite frankly I’ve neither; my form is patchy and the only class I’m familiar with involves yoga. My excitement levels are high but expectation levels low. It all starts on Saturday (weather […]
