What is the Retreat of Our Own?

Sixteen years ago, a small group of Lutheran lay people — prompted by the glory of the mountains in the fall and the excitement of learning new things about our faith — organized a weekend retreat that would combine first-rate speakers on theological topics with plenty of time for enjoying the lake, forming and nurturing friendships, eating together, and participating in worship.

Although developed with lay people in mind, the weekend is open to clergy, students, and anyone with an interest in the topic. While the organizers are Lutheran, participants from all backgrounds are welcome.
