This week on Sunday Morning With, my guest is the wonderfully effervescent, Anne Ellis - art historian and broadcaster, who amongst many other things, will be talking about a special project that she's going to be involved in with us here on the programme - indeed it's one we'd like you to be involved in too. Anne will reporting for Sunday Morning With, on objects of spritual significance, so your suggestions of pieces of art, sculpture, paintings - even a spiritual site, do get in touch and let us know.

Over the last few weeks we've followed the stories surrounding the anti-capitalist protesters at St Pauls - and of course there are similar camps all around the world. We're taking a Scottish slant on that subject and discussing the issues arising from the demonstrations, while asking whether they actually offer any real solutions.

This week the Alliance of Religions and Conservation launched their Sacred Land initiative in Assisi in Italy - it's the world's first global commitment to green pilgrimage - we'll be finding out more.

The message about drugs is always a challenging one for parents and health professionals - we'll be hearing about a powerful new play in Dunfermline's Carnegie Hall, this Wednesday and Thursday, which aims to tackle that very subject.

And Tommy Whitelaw will be talking about a rather different tour he's just completed - gathering stories from carers, about living with dementia. And that's not where the story ends, because later this week, he'll be presenting those, very poignant, stories and letters to Health Secretary Nicola Sturgeon in Parliament.

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 at 0700 every Sunday.
