I always look forward to reading through Sunday School so I am taking a turn as its editor. There are many more stories I could include so if anyone stumbles upon a topic during the week and thinks we should hear about it then please email the links to me and I will include them the following week.
So if your coffee is ready......

Good work, Reg!
I too thank you, Reg, for rekindling Sunday School -- even if the A History of the World in 18m minutes. Another good TED talk did start out with a first there was nothing and then there was something story.
so 2 Moroccan teenagers got arrested for posting a pic of themselves kissing.
calm your dicks people .. it's just a kiss.
@Marvel – the silliest thing about the story is that in order for people to be “outraged” by this affront to “public decency” they have to go online, (where of course there are no images that could upset anyone) and then go to a specific Facebook page and search for the picture.
It reminds me of the story of the Irish priest that was even more upset the second time he watched some sex scene in a film a few years back. Doah!!
My thanks too, Reg! I've always enjoyed the TA Sunday School.
