The purpose of this paper is to examine the Lutheran practice of personal announcement and registration for Holy Communion on the basis of the pastoral concerns connected with this practice. Since the church I served on vicarage in Fergus Falls, Minnesota, changed its practice from personal announcement to simple registration for Communion, and since this writer learned of other churches which had made or were in the process of making similar changes, an examination of these Lutheran practices on the basis of the pastoral concerns connected with them posed a highly profitable study.
