I really do have the "perfect" first hour guest on my Sunday Morning Show this week - Mark Nevin from late eighties, Scottish band, Fairground Attraction whose hit song Perfect earned them a Brit award. Now a trained psychotherapist he talks about his faith and explains how that too, changed over the course of his life.

It's National Adoption Week and it was great to hear the remarkable story of Christine Lawson who adopted not one, but three siblings. We hear about the work of the British Association of Adoption and Fostering and one woman who was adopted as a 5 month old baby.

Muslims around the world are celebrating the Hajj - the annual pilgrimage to Mecca and I'll be talking to someone who has made that remarkable journey twice already.

Frank Furedi talks about his latest book - On Tolerance and explains it's relevance in today's increasingly intolerant society

And we hear about the origins of the Glasgow St Mungo singers who celebrate their 40th anniversary this weekend.

Just some of this weeks moral and ethical debates and a great mix of music, that's Sunday Morning with me, Cathy Macdonald, here on BBC Radio Scotland.
