We are living in a time of transition, when the character, the personality of Canada [and all of NA] is changing, morphing. In many cities, the 'visible minority' now are actually the majority - and within a few years this will be true in most of our urban centres.

Open Out is a podcast series to empower everyday folk to live courageously, even joyfully, in the midst of these reconfiguration. Canada has changed, is changing - a country today in which the people themselves are as diverse as the land itself. This is a series about the nitty-gritty of creating and living in intercultural communities, the practical side of welcoming folk from different cultures into our lives. It is a safe space where all of us, no matter what our cultural background is, can gently open our hearts and heads to diversity, create space in our personal lives and faith communities for those who not only look and sound different, but also think and act in ways we might not expect.

While funded by a grant from the United Church Foundation, to equip congregations with new resources, the information in these podcasts can benefit all kinds of groups. This first episode is an introduction to the entire series.

This episode was written and published before we felt the full effect of the  Cover-19 pandemic.
