The stories we tell about ourselves not only define our past, but also define our future.  We return to the Forgotten Era of the Missouri Synod to show that it was not a time of easy missions to ethnic enclaves, but a time of hard work and dedication despite serious obstacles.  Men like William Dallmann forged the future of the Missouri Synod through tireless work in a rapidly changing environment.  When we see the work it took to forge the Missouri Synod after the days of Walther, we will be driven to imitate their example and do the same in our current context.
