The Anglican Foundation of Canada's Foundation Forward podcast invites Canadians to talk about generosity: why it’s important, and how they express it.
Created during the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 by Executive Director Canon Judy Rois, Foundation Forward digs a bit deeper into the idea of generosity, beyond the 'duty' we sometimes think it to be, into the joy and the calling it has become for some remarkable people. The series is hosted by Toronto musician and media professional Christopher Dawes.

Foundation Forward Podcast, Episode 8: Barry Foster
An Anglican Priest now serving the Diocese of British Columbia as its Executive Officer, The Reverend Barry Foster's ministry has taken him far and wide bearing the generosity and support of his bishop and their Diocese to the ministries of local churches... but more than once he's found he himself going home the richer for the gifts he received along the way.
Foundation Forward Podcast, Episode 7: Generosity The Word
"The 18th century French philosopher François-Marie Arouet, who you might know as 'Voltaire' wrote, "If you wish to converse with me, define your terms." This frigid February on Foundation Forward we're doing just that - breaking with our usual pattern of an invited guest and stepping back to have a close look at the actual word generosity."
Foundation Forward Podcast, Episode 6: Michael Coren
Toronto writer and Anglican Deacon Michael Coren's most recent books tackle subjects like inclusion and grace - not ideas universally attached to his name a decade ago. From the garden of Toronto's Church of St Martin-in-the-Field he tells us about his journey to ordination, and the role generosity played.
