The work of Brethren Service in Europe, following the devastation of World War II, is an example of the church at its best. Following Jesus' example, Brethren Service crossed political boundaries to extend a helping hand.


The work of Brethren Service in Europe, following the devastation of World War II, is an example of the church at its best. In an outpouring of service backed financially by sacrificial giving, the Church of the Brethren came to the aid of neighbors in need. Following Jesus' example, Brethren Service crossed political boundaries to extend a helping hand. "They opened up their hearts, and tried to build bridges, and the bridge was Christ's love," said Wilbur Mullen, who was active in the post-war relief work.
For the first time, this story is available in video format, with photos and film footage from the time period, as well as interviews with those who served. To suit the needs and interests of a variety of audiences, the story is told in three different styles and formats.

Documentary version (27 min.) A comprehensive look at the work in Europe in the late 1940s and early 1950s.

Brief documentary (12 min.) A brief look, designed for shorter formats and for sparking discussion.

Music video (3 min.) A lively, fast-paced presentation especially for younger audiences.

Personal reflections (29 min.) Historical photos, information, and reflections, prepared by Wilbur Mullen.
