Lutheran World Service.

After WW II, interchurch aid and refugee service increased; Luth. chs. often carried on activities with little knowledge of each other's work. In the US, Luth. World Relief, Inc., was founded 1945 as an agency of the National* Luth. Council; it serves people regardless of race, creed, or pol. connection. The Lutheran* World Fed. resolved 1952 to create a Dept. of Luth. World Service. Luth. nat. organizations cooperate with this dept. See also Canada, B 29; National Lutheran Council, 4.
