    "for though" and "in their midst"

    For though it's clear that the various members of the community in this version will never agree entirely on one interpretation of (or story about) the elephant, they do not let themselves get bogged down in endless dispute. Instead they compare and combine their various stories and “readings” in order to form a more satisfying, holistic understanding of the wonder in their midst.

    What do "for though" and "in their midst" mean in these sentences?

    Are they more formal than 'for though' and'in the midst'?

    Thus may feel a little more formal to some people. In their midst feels more formal to me than among them.
