1 Corinthians 1: 26-29;
In the year 1872 the Missouri Synod was 25 years old, and it was with mixed emotions in the hearts or its members that this milestone was reached. Most of the first leaders of the Synod were still alive and even active in the ministry at this time. When they looked back not only to the founding of the Synod in 1847 in Chicago but also to the emigration from Germany and settlement in this country, they saw that the Lord had been gracious to them, and that He had led them through numerous difficulties and over many obstacles to make them a prospering Synod by 1872.
