This article is a pastoral-theological reflection on the article by Feige and Lukatis: 'The Religio-political Functions of the Present-day 'Kirchentags' in West Germany in the Context of Post-modern Societies'. The first section of this article refers to section 2.5 of the study by Feige/Lukatis and is especially concerned with the deficit that people experience both in the local congregation and in the broader denomination. The second section attempts to gauge the ecclesiological value of the Kirchentag, taking as point of departure the concept of communio. This leads to the conclusion that a unique ecclesiological place should be given to the Kirchentag, between the local congregation/parish on the one hand and the broader denomination on the other.
