Honored Speaker: Debra Avery

Whether working with community leaders in a redlined neighborhood in Yonkers, providing support for Native Americans and Latinx immigrants in Phoenix, partnering with neighbors in Oakland, or standing with LGBTQ Presbyterians in presbyteries and at General Assembly, Debra has chosen to work in the intersections where multiple oppressions are often felt the strongest. Her sense of justice has been shaped by her work as a pastor in settled congregations in New York, Illinois, Arizona and California, and living with her family in Mexico, Japan, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Maryland. In addition to her service as a Pastor, she has served as Moderator of the Presbytery of San Francisco and as co-founder of two grassroots organizations (in Yonkers and in Oakland) which focus on racial equity.

Cost: $225 per person (scholarships available)

Esther On Purpose: Living Out God's Call One Way Or Another
It seems that every day we’re confronted with the pain of a world in need of the good news of God’s justice and peace. It’s important that we stay in touch with the ways God’s call unfolds for “such a time as this.” As we spend a few days with Esther, we will find all the encouragement we need to be courageous and faithful, listening deeply for God’s call and responding with the extraordinary gifts we’ve already been given. 


The retreat includes 5 meals and two nights lodging in comfortable, renovated cabins. 
This retreat is a great opportunity to make new friends and enjoy the beauty of Mt. Veeder. Scholarships are available.  WHAT TO BRING: Warm casual clothing, sturdy shoes, an umbrella or rain coat, a Bible, a favorite mug, notebook and pen, a flashlight, handiwork (knitting, cross-stitch, etc.), a book to read, a musical instrument, and ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. You are invited to participate in our program, crafts, free-time, and worship, as you wish. If you would like to discuss the need for a scholarship to defer some of the cost of the retreat, please contact Rev Dr. Steve Wilde at 447-2078 or steve@fpcl.us or Linda Alexander at 449-9304 or Linda_Alexander@sbcglobal.net
