“True to Myself” is the first of a four-part retreat series sponsored by Portico Benefit Services. While everything seems to be changing within and around us, the purpose of the retreat is to seek our true nature. We will explore our whole, unbroken selves in the midst our life stories, which we offer up freely and joyfully to the world.
Who Should Attend?
Especially designed for rostered leaders, but anyone in the midst of a life transition – retirement, new call, divorce, loss of a loved one, or emotional distress – will benefit.
Whatever your transition, come away to Lutheranch to listen, discern and connect with God and others in transition.
The retreat offers the rythym of liturgy that includes music, scripture, poetry, time for individual and small group reflection within a sacred, safe space. Participants are invited to pause, listen and gain clarity.
“True to Myself” is April 18-20, 2018 at the McKanna-Sandrock Retreat Center at Lutheranch. Cost per Person: $425 (private room), $350 (double occupancy) Includes lodging, meals and program. All rooms have a private bath. Round trip transportation from Atlanta Hartsfield Airport for $50.00.

Michael Larson, Director of Worship, Arts & Service, Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd, Olympia, WA
Michael graduated from the Master of Theological Studies program at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, in Berkeley, CA, where he focused his studies on music as local theology. “I was raised going to a Lutheran church every Sunday morning, listening to radio on the way – it makes sense to me that these two things can be joined together. I’m interested in pointing to the presence of God in all of life and removing the false divisions between sacred and everything else.”
