The union negotiations among the Norwegians served to take most of the Norwegian Synod's members out of direct fellowship with the Missourians. The consummation of the Norwegian union seemed, on the other hand, to direct the Ohio and Iowa synods toward each other and possibly toward the Missouri Synod. There were other factors, of course, which tended to bring about a partial temporary amelioration of the animosity between the synods. One of these factors was a series of free conferences held in the early years of the twentieth century.
