The Lutheran Church is becoming more aware of its responsibility over against social welfare work. However, the very fact that there are so many divisions, also known as synods or conferences, within the Lutheran Church itself, immediately proves a hindrance in carrying out its ministry of mercy. What is the past record of the Lutheran Church in welfare work? Which organizations are in existence which help carry on this work as a Whole? What is meant by Lutheran social welfare work? What is the history of each of the Lutheran welfare agencies found in Nebraska? Is it not possible to co-ordinate and integrate a long inter-synodical lines a program of Lutheran welfare?
